The Allen's in our ward said goodbye to their 5 year old daughter this morning at 12:30am as they walked her down to the OR so that she could become an organ donor. Her organs will save the lives of at least 5 other children.
I am so heartbroken for this family. Everytime I see my little Claire I wonder what that would be like and it is impossible to imagine. Things like this tend to hit me so hard. I can't help but internalize them. The hardest part is not being able to help in any way. Funeral plans are underway but I just wish there was something I could do to help them now.

Aubrey- I totally know what your talking about! We all want to do more to help this mother, but we don't know what. Nothing seems like enough!Every night I lay in bed and just cry for this family, mostly the mother! To lose ones child is the most horrible thing a parent can go through. But, the Lord is with them at this time. And sometimes when there is nothing we can do, our prayers are enough!
