    They are hanging in there--they've dealt with this setback and we are moving forward--we'll hopefully know what the next step is by tomorrow--one of her main concerns as always was that we let you guys know.

    Keep that support coming--it makes moments like these a little easier to bear

    First words out of my mouth were, well, they cannot be repeated! This has to be so frustrating for all. I think of what this family has endured......the strength they must have has to be the strength of a zillion horses. There is a light at the end of this tunnel, just don't know how long the tunnel actually is....and that light will be the right answer, a new liver, for Aiden. I'll be doing some chatting with the Man upstairs tomorrow on the fenceline....

I just KNOW that Aiden will find a donor very soon...My thoughts, prayers and tons of LOVE being sent your way! All of you are so strong and that strenght passes through to your beautiful little boy! All I want for Christmas is for Aiden to find a donor!!

    I'm sure that is disappointing news but it must mean that the perfect donor is still out there!

    Prayers are still being sent from MD for you Aiden.

    Yes we all are disappointed Jennifer didn't make the match but let's try to keep this thread positive for the family. We have a lot to be grateful for. Aiden's smile is on the top of my list. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img] I look at his adorable photo everyday and count my blessings.

    Stay hopeful everyone. The Hawks need us more now. Hugs to all.

    In telling my sister about Aiden and the BB (it is hard to explain, actually how this is a real community and all about the auction), my sister told me that she was now on a national registry for bone marrow donation, due to the need of a friend's child (who she was not a match for).

    Isn't there anything similar for livers? I guess not, or your quest would be over by now.

    Perhaps Aiden's plight can spur the development of such a registry?

    I am so sorry that a match is so hard to find. But there is one out there for him. I truly believe that.

    Jingles and prayers --lots and lots of them!

    I wish we could all be there to greet you when you get home with hugs (and maybe some milk and cookies and your favorite bunny slippers).

    Stay strong and positive (as you always are) and give that little trouper a goodnight kiss from his BB aunties and uncles.

    But I am sticking to my resolve that this is just one more twist building up to the blockbuster Hollywood happy ending!

    Curb chains still jingling ... Aiden, my young friend, someday you will have one helluva story to tell!

    And that's how I really feel,

    So sorry for the bad news, and still crossing my fingers that someone will match soon.
