Hi Rachel! Your Dad comes to my class at the Y and he is tough! He promised me today that he would bring you into see me someday and I know that will happen and you will have a whole heart beating inside of you and lead you to a rich, happy and healthy life!! We prayed for you and another 16 year old boy in class today whose mom is very worried about him! But we all have faith in God, no matter what religion we choose, and our prayers will be answered for both of you! Take care, Rachel, and I will look forward to meeting you! By the way, your Dad gave me one of your t-shirts and I wore it in class!!!! Keep smiling!!!

Hi Rachel!! I am not sure how I found your Mom's blog and saw your sweet, illuminating smile but I sure am glad I did!! My daughter, Mei Mei (who is 4) and I always "checked in" with you (on the computer) in the mornings when you were in the hospital because she wanted to see you first thing! We will keep you in our prayers and pray that God will continue to bless you always! We just ordered 2 shirts (1 for me and 1 for Mei Mei) and we will be honored to wear them and share the sweetness of your spirit with others!!

I often read your mommy's blog and that is how I have found you. You are the most beautiful girl! You have the most illuminating smile! I am a teacher and I have a natural love for children. When I saw your blog I knew right away that God has such big plans for you! When I read about you I feel changed. You have such an amazing story of hope. Your hope is contagious and I love it!
Each year during the New Year I ask God to give me a word to focus on. This year he gave me the word patience. Patience is something that is so hard for me. However, God wanted to give me PATIENCE because he knew I needed it this year. It is so hard to have patience and we can't have patience unless we have hope. You are the true definition of hope! Your mommy's blog has taught me also a ton about patience through Jesus. Please know that many people around the world are praying for you sweetie. You are so loved!

I have posted your sight on my facebook page and sent Emails to EVERYBODY I know. I also made sure your shirt and picture was put up in our restaurant (personally). My Wishes go out to you guys. I won't be taking your bracelet off anytime soon, and will wear your shirt as much as possible. Feel free to friend me on facebook (Robert Osborn). I will do my best to pass your good word. Take care and hope to see you guys soon!

Hi Rachel It's so amazing to hear a story like your's. I'm praying that God may heal you in the most crazy ways He does! You are a beautiful young girl, keep your heart yearning more and more for God and what He has to give and teach you! Trust Jesus, and leave it all to Him, He has a plan for you! Praying that God may give you a heart transplant that you need desperately. He hears your cries and He will surely be answering them. Praying for you and your family Rachel!
May God bless you and restore you through all of your tough times! =)
"My God shall supply all my needs, according to His riches in glory
He will give His angels charge over me
Jehovah Jireh cares for me."

We had so much fun meeting you at the Suns baseball game! Your joy and sweet spirit has forever changed our hearts. Watching you speed through those bases reminded us that ANYTHING is possible with Jesus. So, we are praying for you and your beautiful heart, and trust that God is preparing the perfect heart for His sweet, sweet princess. Thank you for your faith. You inspire so many and you truly make this world a better, brighter place! Stay strong, and keep sharing that BEAUTIFUL smile of yours! You are changing hearts and increasing God's kingdom.
We love you and are always praying!
You are a blessing,
Garrison and Madison
