Happy Transplantiversary! I've always checked "yes" on my Driver's License Donor Question, but recently I signed up to be on the Bone Marrow Donor Registry. I got called yesterday that I may be a match to donate! Thank you for giving a face and story to the importance of donation!

happy transplantiversary, Tricia!
happy birthday, Nathan!

Have a blessed Easter! :-)

Erin said...

Happy transiplantiversary, Tricia. Hope you and Nate have a wonderful duo-celebration. And special prayers for your donor family, too. A friend's 2-yr-old son is waiting at the moment for a new heart--1500 km from his Dad and siblings and all his friends--waiting for another family to make the same unselfish decision in the midst of their personal grief. God bless all donors and their families.

Momofgirls said...

Yeah Tricia! What a gripping story was unfolding 2 years ago! Many tears were shed at our house and HOW COOL for my kids to experience God's answers to our prayers!

Nathan got a wonderful birthday gift, and I am sure THAT on will be hard to top!

We loved spending time with Rick and Gail a few weeks ago at my in-laws house! Saw lots of darling pictures of the sweet "cousins" in action!!

We are continuing in prayer for you and your family!!

MamaOnABudget said...

Congratulations Tricia (and family)!!

Prayers of thanksgiving and for comfort also ascend for the donor's family.

sarah said...

tricia, i continue to be amazed at all that God has done in your life and through your story. i am so grateful that you continue to enjoy good health and be the living example of grace that you continue to be.

here's to a lifetime of health and happiness ahead of you. may God richly bless you, nate, gwyneth, and your family:)

Jen said...

Happy Transplantiversary Tricia! What better day to celebrate it than Good Friday (well maybe Easter Sunday ;) ).

tdraxler said...

Oh my, Two years! I remember it well. On April 3 that year, I was at a retreat for work (I teach at at Catholic school). During Mass we were given the opportunity to add our prayer intentions out loud and I lifted both Gywneth and Tricia's names in prayer, then broke into tears - much to the shock of my co-workers! I had to explain afterward that I didn't "know you" guys.


Following your story has helped to give me a stronghold in my faith, which I have needed time and time again in these last two and a half years.

Happy Easter. Happy Everything.

Happy Transplantiversary!

As A matter of fact I am sitting in a family room at Duke typing this now. I've remembered you and your family and all that you went through as I have walked these halls.

I also was (because we had to go see the fish aquarium on the 5th floor) close to where Gwyneth spent her first days of life, and it's really neat to be so close to where you recieved your new life and where you also started your new family.

I don't know what else to say right now, except Congratulations, and many, many more anniversary's for you,

I've known you since you were adopted Tricia, and look forward to Nate's blog every day. Your family's story never fails to brighten whatever is going on in my own life. I followed Eva's blog also, and just can't get used to the idea that I won't read her fantastic communications any more...so, you and Gwyneth continue to thrive...for all our sakes!!!! God bless all...

Happy Transplantiversary!...Does Gwenyth have the DVD of the Book of Pooh? The last story is about Eeyore's Tailiversary. My niece must be watching this too often because my mind immediately started humming the song only changing the words to "Have a happy, happy, happy Transplantversary..."
What a wonderful date to celebrate!
