Two Mothers Bond Over One Child
4-Year-old Jordan had an insane amount of complications in her body due to a heart valve. At just 18 months old, a heart transplant was done on Jordan in hopes of saving her life. Jordan’s mother, Esther Gonzales, was so relieved when the heart transplant was a complete success. However, it only took her seconds to realize, that somewhere out there, a mother had lost her child.
That child was 7-month-old Lucas. He was Heather Clark’s only child, and when tragedy struck she did not hesitate to give up her son’s organs in hopes that he would save a life.
“I can’t save my own son, why not save somebody else’s?”
Nearly 2 years after the transplant, the 2 mothers get together and Heather was able to hear Lucas’ heartbeat once more.
