Apologies for the not at all Disney related post but as a proud mum I just wanted to share. In a few days my daughter and I leave for South Africa where she will compete for her country in the World Transplant Games. These are the Olympic Games for people who have had organ transplants. She had a liver transplant when she was just nine months old - that was 23 years ago We have made friends with many families from all over the world who are great ambassadors for the success of transplantation and sport. She has trained so hard and hopes to win a medal or two in swimming and track. Sorry for the long post it's 2am here and I am just overwhelmed with emotion at how the little girl who we thought wouldn't survive her first birthday has grown up to achieve so much. I do admit to being biased! Thanks for letting me share.

Thank you so much for your kind wishes - even more emotional now! I'll try and post a pic or two if no one minds the non Disney theme. - rink2  200.9 #42 7:39PM
