A California mother, who tragically lost her infant son after he was abused by his babysitter’s boyfriend, got to hear his heart beat again.
The baby boy, Lukas, died in 2013, and his mother, Heather Clark, decided to donate his organs to save the lives of other children, Fox 10 Phoenix reported.
“There is another family out there, somewhere, you know who’s feeling something of what I’m feeling, somewhat, and I have the chance to make them not go through what I’m about to go through,” Clark told Fox 10.
At Phoenix Children’s Hospital on Friday, Clark got to meet the recipient of her son’s heart, 4-year-old Jordan Drake.
It was a moment Clark and Jordan’s mother, Esther Gonzalez, have been waiting for since Jordan got her son’s heart this past December.
“We’re family now, we’re friends now, our families are families, we’ve brought our families together,” Gonzalez told Fox 10.
Jordan presented Clark with a heart covered teddy bear that, when squeezed, played the sound of her son’s heart.
It was one of several times Clark broke down in tears.
The most emotional moment was when Clark put a stethoscope to Jordan’s chest and heard her son’s heart beating inside the young girl for the first time.
“It’s so strong,” she said through tears.
