Mia was featured in the Puyallup Herald on Christmas Day and the Tacoma News Tribune yesterday. Here are the links to read about her story. I thought it was well written and very informative!
For Mia, a gift of life and love
Dozens of Northwest children need heart transplants
Mia enjoyed a nice Christmas with her family. She is still on many medications but is happy nonetheless. Her mommy, Mimi shared some nice words that I thought I'd post:
The best thing about Christmas was being home, and being home with this little babino. She is such a sweet baby and is the best Christmas present I could have ever asked for. Christmas is a great time to think about what is important to you and reflect on how blessed you have been throughout the year. I doubt there will be another year like this one. We have been through so much together as a family and are strengthened because of it. I don't take life for granted and I hold that little sweetie pie knowing what a miracle it is that she is alive. Also, I think of her donor family and how they are feeling on Christmas day. I hope they can feel of our gratitude to them. We are incredibly blessed, and have seen many miracles. I now know a greater level of Joy because of Mia. I have a better understanding of the atonement and what the savior did for all of us. Christmas will never be the same for me.Thank you to everyone who has done so much for our family this year. We could not have made it on this journey without many of you!! Merry Christmas to you all!!
