Thank you letter to MY DONOR!!!

How do you say thank you to someone who gave you life?
My parents gave me life! They created me.
They brought me into this world knowing they would teach me, guide me, mentor me, advise me, and that in doing so,
they committed to a life of love, shelter, acceptance, concern, worry and happiness.
How do you say thank you to a person you have never met?
A person who gave you the ability to walk outside again?
Smell the air after a rainfall?
Make angels in the snow after a snowfall?
Fulfill her parents dream of all they committed to when they brought me into this world?
to see her daughter grow up to be all that she dreams for her?
The ability to be healthy once again, and not worry about illness, IV's, medications, death!
Is there a way???
Growing up in high school, our school motto was "Think and be thought of"
... seems like you may have been brought up with that same mentality.
To give life because you can. Because you care. Because you are willing!
That is an extraordinary gift that I could never pay back.
However, I can tell you, that I am striving to be a better person then before.
I cherish the little things and big things. Smells, tastes, friends, family.
When I was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia in June 2009, I was scared.
Scared I would leave this world without making my mark on it.
Scared I would leave my daughter alone, without a mother, to learn, grow,
and deal with life's surprises and let downs by herself. Alone in a big world.
Then you came along.
Nine months to the day, you gave me life...again!!!
I live because of you. I breathe the air because of you.
I see sunrises and sunsets because of you. I see a new beginning because of you.
Your selflessness. Your braveness. Your caring ability to save someone you have never met!
I feel a connection to you every day when I wake up and fall asleep!
Your family should look up to you, admire you, love you, for you have shown the same to others.
To me! You are a part of my family, now and forever!
I will live my life to make you proud. To carry on the goodness that you have shown me.
To save others!
I would love to correspond with you and get to know the person behind the generous gift
in which you gave me. Perhaps, through email and maybe one day, to meet, face to face.
Yours in health and a strong bond,
