In a dream Jeff woke me up. He looked like a very pretty 16 year old girl and he sounded like himself. He told me that he is with 'her' and is alright. He told me that 'she' is his heart donor. Half of me is very happy about this and the other half...I feel like my heart is being ripped out of my chest. God bless that beautiful blonde headded girl who loved pineapple and her family. I know they go through the same awful times that I do. Whoever you are, sweet donor family, I love you and I'm sorry it didn't work. What a generous gift you gave my family and then to have it not even work.   To all of the donor moms out there. Would you want a letter from the recipient family even if the organ did not work?

Colleen, twice Chris received donor heart valves, and I too am so thankful to those families because that bought me years with my son that I may not have had. And even though we all thought he was well repaired and was suppose to live a full life, but then suddenly was taken from us.....I am so glad I had those extra years. I don\'t know who the donors were. That was an amazing dream....Jeff was letting you know he\'s with you. Love, Kim

WOW that\'s AMAZING. Definitely a message from beyond. Don\'t fret, if he is okay then she is okay too! I believer the afterlife is better than what we think we love about being here. When you think of it, what is so wonderful about this life? Here we are without our children!!! I think our loved ones who passed, miss us, but they know we will be with them eventually and the loved ones who passed before are now with them I think of the girl next door that my son grew up with who was killed in a car accident a year before he passed. He filled journals with poems about her. I am sure they are together now trying to help us and more, much more.

My son was not a donor, but I would have done this had I been able to. Whether it worked out or not. It is a wonderful dream that you had and I think they are truly together now. Love to you, Belinda

YES! I\'d want the letter. I\'ve had the privledge of speaking to the little girl who received one of Kala\'s eyes. It was amazing for me and very healing. Then one day I got a call from her mom saying she\'d been hit in the eye and may lose it. It was like a knife in my heart. Luckily her eye healed and all is well. But even if she\'d lost the eye, I would be thankful to know the precious little girl who\'d shared a part of Kala for a while. I also think there is opportunity, in connecting with the other mother if the recipient does not survive. Who better to reach out? You are connected for all of eternity, and you can offer much needed support and understanding. So, yes, I would want a letter either way. Love happens either way. And you know what Kala says....LOVE IS ALL THAT MATTERS!

Oh, I forgot to say.....
What an awesome experience!!!! Jeff brought the girl to you in a very personal and unique way.....SO Jeff! I wouldn\'t say her gift did not work. Years were added to Jeff\'s human experience by her donation. If you decide to write to her mom, please share this vision and please let her know how VERY MUCH her daughters gift worked! I think if I were on the receiving end of a letter like that I\'d need to know the family thought it was a success and not a failure. It did not turn out the way either family had hoped, but life was given and love was given. LOVE, my dear....LOVE. Love can never be a failure.....
