I’m not one for football.
I never have been (though I have tried to be at times), but I couldn’t resist sharing this unique story.
Especially because it involves babies, who are the tiniest yet fiercest warriors I know at times. Their resilience always humbles me.
I love the tenacity of the donor family in making sure their son’s heart was also donated. From some other articles I had seen published on this family, without the donor mom’s insistence it might not have been.
Which (given their circumstances & grief) that insistence had to be an incredible weight to bear.
I’m so happy these two families had a mutual friend to make a bridge for support for both of them so they could eventually forge an important & powerful connection.
