Yesterday we went up to Bellevue to meet with Komo 4 news and Donate life to share Mia's story.
The video isn't that long, but here is a little snippit of the little miss Mees. She was a big flirt, but also quite squirmy. During a majority of the interview NONE of the kids would hold still- we had to eventually give Jensen and Ellie the boot because Jense was making goofy faces at the camera- lovely. He was funny, but was not really sending the correct message about organ donation.
We also got to meet a heart recipient (Nate) and his wife. It is so amazing to meet other families and hear their story. I am recommited to always taking my pre-med after hearing his story!!! It is crazy how quickly things can change, and how so many lives are/can be saved through organ donaiton.

Oh one last thing... I know the camera adds some pounds, but sheesh!! I look HUGE! I will share the video in the name of organ donation awareness- and blame my swollen face on my 45 lb weight gain. Ned makes his debut.. (if he's obedient) in two weeks and three days! Then hopefully I can have my face back.
last last thing... in the clip it states that her heart was fine at 20 weeks... it was not. They told me at the 20 week ultrasound that her heart looked great. Her heart was dilated at that time, but the tech didn't notice. Just to clarify.
