Donations needed to complete home for girl who survived liver transplant

A little girl who survived a liver transplant needs help so she can move into her forever home.

WPXI.com has been following Jamie’s journey since 2015 when she was at Children’s Hospital in Pittsburgh in desperate need of a liver.

A complete stranger stepped in and donated part of his liver to save her life.

“We got her through the worst of it with the liver transplant. We just want to move on and get them a forever home,” said Marilyn Pape, who works for Trumbull County Children’s Services.

Jamie is healthy and thriving and has a family that wants to adopt her and her biological siblings -- 8-year-old Jeremiah, 4-year-old Norriah and 1-year-old Renee. 

The family must add on to their home to make it big enough for all the children. 

Trumbull County Children’s Services partnered with Homes For Kids, a nonprofit group, to launch a campaign to expand the family’s home. Materials and time worth $40,000 have been pledged, but another $50,000 in money and labor is needed by June 1. 

“They are committing the rest of their lives to raising these kids and not knowing what their future holds,” Pape said. 

Donations can be made payable to Homes For Kids and mailed to 165 East Park Ave., P.O .Box 683, Niles, OH 44446, with “A Home For Jamie and Her Siblings” in the memo line.  

Donations can also be made online at youcaring.com
