Love to your family for Thanksgiving from Jim and I and the family. The baloons are a great idea for Mary Cate. She is so precious. Such love for her little brother. I always have people asking me about my bracelt. What is the green!! Marky is an angel for the green. Love, Carol

Comments: What a beautiful site. I am so sorry for the loss of such a precious baby. Baby Mark is adorable. I lost my son Michael in April 2003 in Las Vegas. I donated five of his organs and have actually met one of the recipients. Knowing that Michael was able to save 5 lives has helped me through my grieving process. I was not educated on organ/tissue donation at the time, and it was a tough decision to have to make at that moment. I am very glad I did and now I am a speaker to help get the word out. To Baby Mark's Mom and Dad---I am so sorry for your loss, cherish the wonderful memories of your precious son. I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers.

Comments: Sara and Mary Cate, I thought of Marky as we entered November. The first being All Saints and the 2nd All Souls Day. Marky is not only an angel I see when I look skyward but a New Saint and a happy Soul in heaven. For me, it makes his departure from earth a little less painful. I love the balloon idea--I think Mary Cate is a real smart cookie.

Comments: Sara, How about a TV campaign on Oprah or the Today show. I tried contacting both when Marky was alive and got no response but as his Mother you might. I agree way too many people are still waiting and the campaign needs attention. Or how about a local billboard in a prominent location like by the airport or on I-15. We all need to pitch in and make organ donation an issue just like innoculations for infants. How about a public service announcement on some local channels.

Comments: I was doing research on the web about the small intestine for a nutrition class I am currently taking. I found your website and of course could not pass it up without leaving a message. What a tremendous family you are and my heart and prayers go out to you. I lost my husband in 2002 to rectal cancer, although different that little Mark, still a loss. I have all faith that I will greet him again in heaven. Aren't we all bless to have angels like little Mark and my husband. May God bless.

Comments: Hey Sara, I just wanted to let you know that I feel so honored to know you guys and to have seen Marky while he was with us. I'm so glad that you like the song and I was very happy to do that for you. Thanks also for giving that song "Learning to Let Go" by Mark Schultz to my mom...it's helped us both a lot. And, as Mary Cate gets older (as I'm sure my mom has told you), she is probably going to want or need another girl to talk to beside her mom. As she grows up, please let her know that if she ever needs someone, I'm just a phone call away and I'll do my best to help her through anything. I love you guys!!

All organs are being donated so that Austin will have been born for a reason. In his short life he will save more lives than most people do in 80 years on this earth. I only wish it had come in time to save your baby.

Besides, I know for a fact he will always be there for Mary Cate. Happy Birthday Mary Cate it's been wonderful watching you grow.

Comments: Sara, I pray you keep this website running for a long time. Your call for prayers for others and your feelings for Marky touch more lives than you will ever know. I'm glad to have my green bracelets. I've made sure when I die any and all of my functional organs are used for transplant and I have made that clear to my family by signing a medical directive when I recently had tests done at a LV hospital. I hope anyone who reads this does the same when they sign such directives which are offered by hospitals here in LV and I am sure elsewhere nationwide. May we all learn to love one another while living and in death by organ donation.

Comments: Sara, I continue to follow your journal with great interest. Have you ever thought of starting a support group for parents facing similar birth defects. Your insight in your journal about what you have learned and all the speed bumps on the road of life with a child with special needs could really help others, especially very young couples faced with all the uncertainities you handled with dignity, prayer and the grace of God in the last year.

Comments: Dear Sara, Mark, Ben, Sarah, Mary and our sweet angel Baby Mark, You are all in my thoughts today. I remember getting the call last Mother's Day morning to hear about Baby Marky's arrival. Since the moment of that call, the roller coaster of the emotions of joy and sorrow over the past year have been the most extreme I have ever felt. Marky opened my heart in a way that makes me feel more deeply about so many things. He has enriched my life and seems to do the same for all who are touched by his spirit. I wear my green bracelet every day for a couple of reasons. The primary reason is to be reminded all day that I now have a precious little Godson in Heaven who is giving us blessings. When I need some courage, I touch my green bracelet and ask Baby Marky to help...and he always does. I also wear the bracelet to raise awareness about organ donation. I wish we could count the number of people who have been educated about organ donation by being touched by Baby Marky. I think it would be an incredible number. I am so proud of him for this gift. We miss him very much and wish we were celebrating his first birthday tomorrow with him. I can see his beautiful smile that would always light up the room. I know that he is smiling down on all of you today, especially his Mommy on Mother's Day. What a special Mother's Day gift he continues to be! We love you, Lisa, Bill, Greg, Patch, Todd, Anna, Aimee, Matt, Lauren and Kate XOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXO

I think of baby Marky often but especially weekly in church and pray for all of his family at least then, if not more often. You are an amazingly strong woman and you are also very lucky to have found your soulmate. I pray in time your heartbreak will lessen and just remember your bond with Marky and the fact that his angel wings are above you each day of your and the rest of his family's life.

I have been an organ donor since I first received my driver's licence, but now know that when I do have children, I will make them ones as well. I think parent's don't think about it when something like that happens to their kids. Good luck to baby Mark's family! My prayers are with you.

I will be telling the story of your beloved son in hopes of getting more college aged students to donate their organs and to have their childrens organs donated if ever a time may come as that. I send my prayers to your family and hope that you will recieve many blessings on your life.

I wish that I had been given the option to donate my second sons organs...I would have in a heartbeat but I don't know that his were good enough. I know they tried to do something with his little eyes but since they couln't open them it was impossible. I'm hoping that you have begun to heal from this horribly traumatic journey. -April Metoyer, mom to: Matthew Ryan 12.30.99 and Roland Allan 11.5.02

Please know that many people are praying for your family and you are never far from our thoughts. Baby Mark Jr. is such a blessing for touching so many lives, even ones he doesn't know (although we are all brothers and sisters in Christ). God bless Baby Mark Jr's family always.

We pray everyday for that one miracle and urge people everywhere to get the word out about organ donation. It may be too late for Dylan like it was for Baby Marky but we pray that others out there can help save someone else in need of organs. Please give!

Comments: Sara, What a healing message to all your Journal is. No matter what life holds for you and yours, Marky will always be a part of every day. I know because my Mom has been gone 36 years, my Dad's departure anniversary is 34 years in a few days, my 3 day old nephew left 24 years ago and my brother--the most influential person in my son's life has been gone nearly 17 years and yet they are with me daily, especially my brother, my guardian angel. Marky is on your shoulder praying that somehow his message reaches the world so that no mother or father will ever think twice about organ donations if faced with their own loss. Remember God never gives us more to handle than he knows we can. Prayers and love to all of you.

As his mommy, you are an instrument in delivering the importance of organ donation. He still lives through you. I can't imagine the difficulty it is for you and your family to experience your loss day to day. But please know you have people praying, thinking and wishing you strength. You are a courageous woman. Thank you for sharing your feelings, thoughts and experience. It will benefit the world ten-fold.

Kylie and Connor include you in their prayers every night and thank GOD for letting Marky be a special angel for them. It is true that now and over the next year it will continue to be difficult and some days; perhaps easier. Just know that you still have so many that love you and pray for you every day that it WILL get easier. We, along with many other friends, are there for you in whatever capacity you need us. Every sunset you see will remind you of that beautiful smile and twinkling eyes of your special boy. We hope that will give you much comfort. Hope you have a relaxing visit on your trip. Love, Debi and Rob and kids P.S. Happy Birthday Mark!

Comments: Although a stranger to you and your family, I do mourn Marky's passing, and feel great empathy for all of you. You did everything a parent is supposed to do. You fought to keep him, and you had the strength to know when to let him go. You did all you could for him, and I wish I knew why it was not enough to keep him here. The man who crossed the Twin Towers on a highwire in the 70s lost a daughter when she was ten or so. In a piece in the NYT mourning the loss of the Towers, he said they would always live on in his heart, and he referred to his daughter. When asked how many children he has, he says he tells the inquirer that he has a daughter, who died when she was ten. This is a long way of saying I think I understand what you are saying when you say you will not focus on what might have been in Marky's life, but on the life he had and the happiness that was in it, albeit for too little time. I admire you for letting your feelings out, it would be so easy to bottle them up. My very best wishes to all of you. By the way, I made a point of signing my organ donor card on my new license as soon as it arrived.

Comments: I am touched by you saying you kept thinking about what if you had done something differently. We tend to think that if we had done something differently, the outcome would have been better. It is also possible that what you did was the best thing under the circumstances and that had you done something differently, it would have been worse. So don't second guess yourself. You did the best you could at the time and no one can ask for more than that.
