At a family reunion in 1996, I hit a milestone.  I was actually able to hold a baby (my cousin Allison) without it crying

Last December, at the CCS-Inc Children's Christmas Party, I repeated that feat.  I held young Ian Herbst for a good 15-20 minutes, the whole while he stayed content and happy and never cried.  Only this time there was an explanation.

"With all the nurses and doctors, he's really used to strangers," Ian's father and my co-worker, Brett, said.

Ian was born with Biliary Atresia and is in need of a life-saving liver transplant.  Needless to say, he has had many doctor visits, including exploratory surgery, already in his young life.  The Children's Organ Transplant Association (COTA), along with friends, family and volunteers are trying to raise money to help offset the $100,000 cost of the transplant.
