Jason's Message

Dear Friends,

I want to take a a moment to thank everyone for the support you have offered Jason, Brittney, Will and their extended family over the last two months.  The countless prayers, phone calls, messages, and gifts have been so uplifting! I think I can safely say Darby Kate has taught us all something. I know my relationship with Christ has been strengthened and my family has grown closer than ever before. I am amazed by what this little girl has been able to do in such a short time!

Darby Kate's memorial service and dedication were a perfect tribute to a great warrior for God. Never have I been more proud of my little brother than I was when he looked to the Lord for the strength to stand and speak at his own daughter's memorial service to challenge others to be warriors for God, too. I hope you will take a moment to listen to his message...

Thank you again from the bottom of our hearts.

With Love,
Jennifer (Jason's sister)

Dedication and Memorial Service for Darby Kate Roberts. 
Thurs, May 30 @ The Baptist Church at McAdory (4954 Eastern Valley Rd., McCalla). Visitation 9am and Service 10am. Graveside service to follow at Tuscaloosa Memorial Park.

We invite all who loved and supported Darby Kate and our family through this journey to come and celebrate her tremendous life. Though it is a memorial service, we intend to dedicate our baby to the Lord knowing that she is already safe in his arms. Though tears may be shed, we want this service to be primarily a celebration of Darby Kate's wonderful life, and our Eternal King's grace and glory.

Darby Kate received her angel wings and a new healthy heart at 7:22 this morning. It was a peaceful death and our sweet baby now has a heart full of eternal life in the arms of Jesus. Thank you all for sharing in the blessing that was given to us. We were so undeserving for God to have given us sweet Darby Kate who touched more people in 2 months than Jason and I will in our lifetime.
I want to thank all of you that have followed their journey with Darby Kate.

For the records, God has answered another prayer. She is now on room air and not needing oxygen to keep her SATS up. God is good all the time! Keep on praying prayer warriors and do not give up now. She continues to improve daily. Please also start praying for the future donor family. Thanks and God bless you.

Darby Kate had a great day, but still no pee pee.

Wednesday, May 26, 2013

Darby Kate has been good today but still no pee pee. She had her wound dressings changed and physical therapy. Both went well and she did not become too aggravated. Jason and I had a meeting with one of the transplant doctors this afternoon and they have decided to go ahead and list her again. She will be eligible for a heart without her kidneys working as long as all her other organs are in working order. We are still praying for her kidneys to work. She would be healthier going in to a transplant with everything working.
