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.
