  • I have not been thru this-tho my mother had a lung transplant. but I had to say-what an angel you are? children with medical issues are so hard to place in home and you stepped up to be an angel. What a good mommy you already are.

  • My 18 year daughter had a liver transplant in January after getting autoimmune hepatitis and it caused cirrhosis of the liver. She ended up dying and they bought her back to life and 2 weeks later she got her new liver. She is doing great now and about to start college.

  • I understand that you might have a lot of questions regarding a liver transplant. My 16 year old son has been through this at Justsavelives clinic . He is doing great now and there is no as such hard medical issues found after this treatment. However, your situation is completely different, adopting a 3 year old child that had a transplant be a decision of lifetime. I think it will be good for you to consult with expertise to make an informed decision.
