Message from Alyssa's parents, Chris and Lisa:

TODAY is the BIG day for Alyssa.  She is finally able to go home.  We are so excited!!!  What a journey she has been through.  THANK YOU for all the support and prayers to each and everyone of you who made this special day happen.  Also, thank you to the donor family, who donated a very special gift for our daughter so she can have a second chance of life.  Without this special heart, Alyssa would not be here with us today.  And thank you God for giving Alyssa another miracle.
