My sister is pretty amazing. I have always known this but I feel like shouting it from the roof tops. My sister Nina (as seen above with her husband and two beautiful kids) is giving the ultimate sacrifice. She is giving her kidney to a little boy who needs it.
Nina is blogging about her "story" here. She just started recently so if you want to get the full scoop start at the very beginning. My sister Nina is a retired attorney and now she works full time as an adoption caseworker. She works for very little money because she is so passionate about finding children homes. Particularly children with disabilities and medical needs. Here is a visual of all the children she has found homes for:
How amazing is that?
(gives me the chills)
There is a really special little boy named Gavin who will be the recipient of my sisters kidney. Gavin is making his Make A Wish trip really soon and was one of the little boys that Nina helped to bring home to a wonderful family in California. They are hoping to have the surgery scheduled sometime in the early New Year. If you want to read about Gavin and his family please do so here. They have an amazing blog too!
