Your family is such an inspiration to us all. Thank you for sharing Carol's story with the world and for keeping us all updated. I along with many others have been praying for your family and spreading the word on Carols donation account and silent auction. Our prayers will continue to be with you and your beautiful family.

I'm just a stranger who was directed to your site by a friend because I too had septic shock with DIC (in June/05).

Carol, your story and your strength are so inspirational. I thought I had been through a battle until I read about all you have been through over the past year. I hope this "anniversary week" will leave you feeling triumphant, and not too sad.

Happy Birthday to Safiya!

Scott and Carol,
I am new to your site, new to your story, new to your amazing strength and inspiration and new to your beautiful family. But now that I have been here and have spent over 2 hours reading bits of what you have been through this past year, I will never be the same. I have shed a few tears, and have become overwhelmingly grateful for a Savior who felt everything we each feel in this life. I know that NO ONE else has any idea what you are experiencing.
Whatever it is that is good and beautiful that will come out of this, know that in addition your story can change someone's life instantly and that you, your faith, your courage and your determination are a strength to so many, most of whom I am sure you have no idea, like me.
Thank you for sharing your thoughts, feelings and experiences. I will be praying for your family and
