A day to remember.

It has been an emotional couple of hours. We wanted to process every emotion, spend time, and really just be present for our boy. Blogging and posting to social media wasn't at the tip top of our list. But we know you forgive us. 
We have received the wonderful news that there is a donor heart available for Alex. While our joy is incredible/undescribable, our thoughts are also with our donor family and their loss. We have seen great prayer in our behalf and we ask you at this time to send our donor family prayers of comfort, gratitude, and love. Alex is excited and cautiously optimistic at the same time. He was mostly asleep when we let him know the news and he said "OK".. A sweet smile crossed his face. 
His faith has never faltered, his hope has always been, to get better and get back home. We are so thankful for this amazing opportunity. We are humbled that as we put all our faith in the Father's will, no matter what would have happened, we have this opportunity. 
Now a few requests. 
We are keenly aware of how many people love Alex. While we are going through these couple of days we may not be able to respond to you all. Know that we are so grateful for your continued prayers and good vibes. Also, know that we will update when we can and as you are waiting to hear how things are going that feeling is multiplied 1000X for us. If you have questions please call Grandma Clawson for updates for Brynn's side, for Jeff's side please call Grandma and Papa Homer. The girls are being well taken care of and are so excited for this special day. Our beautiful Ryleigh has fasted for her brother. She has kept this family secret in her heart as difficult as it was. She is amazing. Eden can't wait to play with her big brother again and May asks all the time if Gator still at hoppsittal. 
Until we write again..

Brynn, you don't really know me. I'm very close with Ches and the Lewis family, and met Gator once a long whole back. I haven't been following very long, just since last year when they did that fair for him last summer. This post, this news brings me to tears. Happy happy, joyous tears. Yay, that Gator will soon be home with the sisters again.

There we some shouts of joy from many children in our household when they heard the news. Then some very touched and humbled hearts when we explained the need for prayers for the donors family. Our prayers are with you all. Thank you for continually sharing your journey and testimony with us.
