Episode 240

Six years ago, Marilee Killpack gave birth to a baby boy. That baby boy was diagnosed with Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome, a life-threatening genetic syndrome that affects just one in 250,000 children and is only symptomatic in boys. The life expectancy was 3-5 years. There was, however, one possible way to save his life: he could receive a bone marrow transplant and his 7-year-old brother was a perfect match.

I can’t articulate it well, but I came to love Abraham as a mom because he was saved and needed saving. And I think of our Heavenly Parents who have this Son, who is perfect and they know He’s going to do it and they know He’s going to be awesome and then to look at us, like I look at Abraham, and realize he needs saving. He’s not going to make it and there’s just such a love that I can’t explain for him for fighting, and for being saved by his older brother.
