My point is this as parents we want the best for our children, but what if our children can decide what is best? If they can help another child without dying would you let them? Would you tell them the good the bad the ugly and let them decide? I get we don't want to hurt or let our children get hurt but if want to help even if it means pain would you be okay with it, with their choice?
This is more for a thought process and discussion then a bash fest, this as a personal choice has been something close to my heart that someone with kidney disease and a child, soon to be children I do think about often and would let my child help another. I would be more then willing to take one step at a time I would talk to my children about what they could do to help either at this time a friend or relative (Ds is 5 yrs old) and what it would mean, take each step. Finding out if one is even a match before proceeding further.
I'm sure many wont agree with me and as sad as that is I understand. Just some food for thought and sorry it got so long.
