These are my friends

I am such a lucky girl. I am surrounded by the most amazing people that I have the honor to call my friends.

Last night The Cute Boy and I, along with others watched Xander and Carrie's journey unfold on The Generation's Project.

Xander and Carrie have faced one of the most heartbreaking trials that any one can face with such grace and humility.

Their twin boys at the age of 3 months were diagnosed with a rare genetic blood disease that is fatal without a bone marrow transplant. The twins lives were spared with an anonymous bone marrow donation.

Watch their journey as they find out more about the donor and their search of their own genealogy for other children that lost their lives to this fatal disease.

You will laugh, cry, and fall in love with this family.

I love these people and I love their boys. They are so so incredible.
