Little David 10

We want to first and foremost thank everyone for their thoughts and prayers. We physically feel the peace you are praying over our lives. 

This evening, at 8:28, David was officially pronounced dead this after being declared brain dead. They are sustaining his organs through supports and he is being tested for compatibility to be a donor. 

They are testing his blood right now and we are praying that more of his organs may be useful for this purpose. His kidneys showed some promise, but we're still not sure. We have an amazing team of individuals here with us from LifeBanc.



Courtney Hooley Broome has blessed us with her photography this evening so that we can have a family picture. As hard as it is to maintain composure in these circumstances, she was amazing. 

Thank you for the David Gorham Fund (YMCA) as well as all the financial and food contributions. Your love for us is felt and appreciated. We will continue to update you all as we prepare David's body to donate organs. Pray for healing on his organs so that more lives can be saved through his passing.

Love to you all,
Nicholas Gorham, Kimber Leigh Gorham and Josiah
