Hope’s story has always been full of twists and turns. She’s been a one-in-a-million, unique little lady-unicorn right from the start. I hope everyone reading this takes a deep breath with me now. Hope is not going to make it. She is in heart failure, and that has brought about multiple system organ failure complicated with infections and TMA. She is not a re-transplant candidate. John and I have had to come face to face with the hard truth that her body has taken her as far as it could, but her time here on Earth is drawing to a close.
Our hearts are shattering into a million pieces as we share this news. We’ve lived this journey as a story shared openly with the community of people who love and support Hope so we felt it only right to share this final piece of news, even though it’s devastating. We have a short time with her to hold her, snuggle her and just make sure she knows how much we all love her. If there’s a message you’d like us to whisper in her ear while we share these final hours, leave it here and we’ll pass it along. We want her to be wrapped in not just our love, but the love of all those that have lifted her and our family up over the last two and a half years.
Once we’ve moved to the next step, we will share more details around a time we can gather to celebrate this little shining life of Hope. We have one last video of her little babbling personality to help take the sting out of this news.
Heaven sent Hope; and now she calls her Home.
