Tonight my family went to meet & talk with a couple whom have known me since I was 14 years old. My mom started working for them at that time and she is very close with the wife. I will call the hubby R & the wife P. P has been asking and praying for a while now to be Savannah's donor. I called P a few days ago & told her we had decided it would be an honor for us if she would be the donor. It was like she gasped , held her breath for a moment & then with a sigh of relief said, "Thankyou!" Now mind you, P has never met Savannah. R has came to the hospital on various occasions while she has been sick & was there the when Zack & Luke died. When P first saw Savannah tonight she propped up on her elbow on a McD's trash can and just smiled watching her. I had to fight back my tears so hard! To see the love that this woman has for my daughter. To hear her talk of going under the knife for her! To me, my being the donor is no big deal. I am Savannah's mom. Wouldn't any other mom do the same? And grandma's too. Wouldn't any Grandma do that for their grandchild? But to not even know the child... It is truly God's divine intervening. P is really excited about doing this. Her hubby is so proud of her. Her 13 yos thinks it's cool, her 16 yod wants to watch the surgery & her 21 yos wants to know where she finds all these people who need transplants?!?! My mom came over tonight and wanted details of the meeting. I didn't know what to say. I still don't know what to say. We talked about all aspects of the transplant and how Savannah's life is now. I don't know. I was very impressed with the both of them. R is a pastor & he made the comment that he preaches & tells his congregation not to be afraid to take risks for Jesus and to do the things that Jesus would do & now he is in those shoes. Irony is a funny thing! Anyway, I still don't know what to say! I am blessed!
