All across the world, there are children fighting for their lives in intensive care units.
You may even take care of them.
But right now, this minute, I am concerned about one special girl.
Mary Kate is in second grade. My daughter, Lillian, is her teacher. This is her first year of teaching, so Mary Kate is one of her very first pupils.
Just a few days ago, Mary Kate was out playing on the playground.
Today she is in a Seattle hospital fighting for her life.
Mary Kate has contracted an unknown infection that is, if it has not already, destroyed her liver. To the point of needing a transplant.
Other organ systems are shutting down. She is on a bypass machine.
Mary Kate needs prayers, so I’m asking everyone, anywhere and of any faith to please, please say a prayer for this child.
Her parents have set up a site at Caring Bridge:
I’ve never met Mary Kate.
But she means the world to my daughter.
Which means she means the world to me.
Please pray for her.
