Comments: My thoughts and prayers go out to Little Marky and his family. I am so so sorry for you loss. I just actually heard about this story this morning when I was seqrching Sundays Las Vegas Review journal and it hit home. I lost my little girl back in 1997 (Summer Lynn Coy" uUnfortunatly I wasnt able to get to know here. I am glad though that Marky's family was able to get to know him and see him smile. Im sure it wasnt very easy to see him hooked up to all of those tubes, but Im sure that he knows that his family was there with him every step of the way. I believe that once a person passes on, they go to heaven and watch over there family. Marky is now there and he will see to it that his Mommy, Daddy, his 2 sisters, and brother are taken care of. I only wish though that I wouldve known about this story sooner so that I was able to do something to help. Even though I do not know the family, if there is anything that I can do to help, please, please let me know. Again, I am so sorry for you loss and in time (much time) things will get better. You all will be in thoughts and prayers.

Comments: I was so sad to hear of your recent loss. I have 3 children and I can only imagine the pain your family must be going through. I have been an organ donor since the age of 16 when I got my first license. I truly believe in organ donation and if anything were to ever happen to any of my precious children I will gladly donate their organs so that their dying would not have been in vain. I admire your courage and believe you did the right thing. He is an angel in heaven now. My prayers are with you and yours at this most difficult time.

I'm trying to get people on an email campaign to Oprah to re-air her show on organ donation or do a new one! Since that helped awareness last year, maybe it will help again.

Your clients must know how DEVOTED you are to them. EVERYONE EMAIL OPRAH AT OPRAH.COM TODAY! Just request Oprah to run her organ donor show again. Sara, we would love for you to be home, but this Christmas you will get the gift of life for Baby Mark. Mary will be fine this Christmas, especially since Santa knows you are across the street from the hospital at the Traverton.

Comments: On February 1991 my beautiful daughter Brittany died of SIDS. I did CPR and got her back enough to give me hope and time to say goodbye. She was pronounced dead on valantines Day. I am so greatful that the 11 month old who recieved her liver is thriving now. It is great to know she did good in the world even though she passed on at 4 1/2 months old. I am praying for you and your son. Remember we parents who volunteer to give up the organs of our loved ones are greatful to help to prevent one less person from suffering our tragidy. There was no hope Brittany was brain dead. I recieved a letter from the recipients and there seems to be some guilty feelings but there shouldn't. I decided to donate her organs to put meaning to her life, she left a legacy. that means more than anything

Comments: Dear Sara, Happy belated birthday from Connecticut. You said in your journal that you have a wonderful husband - and that's true! Did you know Mark was in our wedding - he's just always been a terrific guy. I feel bad that I haven't met you in person but Bob told me all about you - and how happy you were making Mark and what a friendly, caring person you are. It's plain as day to anyone who sees your web site that you are one of the most fantastic mothers ever. Maybe someday we'll meet in person. Mark was so great to bring that happy mariachi band into the hospital for you. You're all amazing to me and a lot of others. You know, Sara, every time I log on Baby Mark's site and see that beautiful smile, I fall more and more in love with him. You have all become so important to so many people and we want everything to be good for you. With prayers and love, Sam and Bob

Comments: Sara, Although I have not seen you since we were kids, I remember you coming to hang out at Allens when they lived on Andromeda so many times when the Dixons were in town visiting and you were always so bubbly and adorable. It is heartbreaking to see the picture of your lovely baby boy knowing the difficulties you are having finding an organ donor. I will pray for you and your family and truly hope that God's plan is to provide a transplant for him soon. All my best, Megan Dixon

Comments: Hi Mark jr.,Sara and Mark Sr. Just a reminder that my prayers are getting stronger than ever for all of you. You are all constantly on my mind so I just seem to ask God to continue to give you strength no matter what I am doing.Sweet Baby Mark, I ask god to very soon answer everyones prayers and then you and your family can watch as He heals you.If only we knew His plan for you but that is what our faith is all about.Never have I doubted Him and He WILL show us His plan in one way or another.The strength you have gives your Mom and dad the strength to be patient.As I have told you before patience has never been one of my virtues....well,sweet boy it is now!!!See this has changed many of us.I hope you are resting comfortably and just waiting for your time to come. What a joyous time that will be!!!! I love you so very much. Your great Aunt Sue xoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxooxoxoxoxoxooxoxo

I know that there is some comfort when Marky is not agitated but I understand your concern. Our time in the hospital with dad was short but I can empathize with your struggle. Are you getting any sleep?? I love you. A kiss and a prayer for baby Mark. Strength to all the rest of you.

I am so glad to hear that the infection might be getting cleared up. Life in 15 min increments must make for very long days. I am so glad that your family was there for Thanksgiving. YOu have a very special family Sara. Lots of people that love you so much. Marky too has so many who love him. The impact his life has made on so many is amazing. What a cutie. I hope that you are holding up. I will call you today. I love you and pray and hope for you. Stay strong. Lisa

Comments: Sara and Mark, we have been thinking a lot about your family the last few days and we are glad that baby Mark seem to be holding his own. I have all of the nuns at ST. Agnes (the Home were my lives) praying for your family. They have the beads straight to heaven. Everything is good here in St. Louis, it is starting to get cold, it feels really cold because it has been so warm lately. Brett and her husband bought a house and will be moving the middle of January. Everyone has a birthday this week, Anitra on Monday, Bryan on Wednesday and Keith on Thursday. And if I remember correctly, Sara one day this week also. Happy Birthday, may all of your birthday wishes come true. Love, Sharon

Comments: BABY MARK, SARA, AND FAMILY......I AM PRAYING FOR ALL OF YOU. BABY MARK YOU ARE SO STRONG, YOU ARE MY HERO. I THOUGHT ABOUT ALL OF YOU YESTERDAY, AND PRAYED A FEW TIMES FOR YOU. I AM WORKING SO HARD AT GETTING THE WORD OUT. WE NEED EVERYONE TO BE AN ORGAN DONOR......SO,THIS MISERY WILL END FOR ALL OF US....AND EVERYONE WHO'S NAME HASN'T BEEN MENTIONED. THERE ARE SO MANY IN NEED, AND SO MANY THAT JUST CHOOSE NOT TO DONATE, I JUST DON'T UNDERSTAND. EVEN BEFORE MY PERSONAL EXPERIENCE WITH THIS, IT WASN'T A CHOICE, I HAVE ALWAYS BEEN A DONOR. GOD BLESS, AND THANKS SARA FOR THE UPDATES. I WISH I WAS CLOSE TO YOU AND YOUR FAMILY, I WOULD HAVE COOKED FOR ALL OF YOU. I WISH I COULD DO MORE FOR YOU. I PROMISE I WILL GET THE WORD OUT. THIS IS MY LIFE MISSION, I WON'T STOP UNTIL EVERYONE HEARS ME....AND MARK YOU ARE THE INSPIRATION FOR MY ACTIONS. GOD BLESS YOU BEAUTIFUL BABY! WE DON'T EVEN KNOW YOU, AND YET WE LOVE YOU.

Comments: I just want to say that I never thought about organ donation from a child. I just discussed with my husband two nights ago that if something were to happen to me I want him to say yet to donating any of my organs. I have a 2 1/2 yr old son and I pray to God he will never be harmed but I never even thought of organ donation from him and now I know that if that was ever the case it would help me a little to know I could help somebody else's child. You are in my thoughts and prayers and I hope you find a donor soon!!!
