Mother loses her son, but hears his heartbeat again inside a 4-year-old girl

heart2Losing a young child is heartbreaking, but thanks to modern medicine, that tragic event can be used to help others. Heather Clark decided to donate the organs of her dying son. Now, she can hear his heart beating inside the chest of the little 4-year-old girl who received his heart.

Fox 8 reports,

Clark faced an unthinkable tragedy in 2013 when she lost her 7-month-old son, Lukas. She chose to donate his organs and saved the lives of three children, including 4-year-old Jordan Drake.

On Friday, Clark was given the opportunity to meet Jordan at Phoenix Children’s Hospital and listen to her son’s heartbeat for the first time in three years.

Clark wrote, “One week from today I will be listening to Lukas’ heartbeat once again. I will be holding Jordan in my arms showering her with love and kisses!”
