Mom Lets Go of Brain Dead Daughter. Now, See What Happens When She Meets an Orphaned Girl

One mother's life was turned upside-down when her 7-year-old daughter was killed. She donated her daughter's organs so that other children could live. The moment she got to hear her daughter's beating heart in another child's body was full of emotion.

Jade was hit by a car and pronounced brain dead upon arrival at the hospital. Her mother Debbie Stoner was devastated, but made the difficult decision to donate Jade's organs. Because of that decision, three children who might have died got the chance to live.

Ten years later, Debbie was contacted by a man who had an amazing story for her. A decade ago, he and his wife became foster parents to a little abandoned baby named Nellie. The baby needed a new heart, and she was the recipient of Jade's heart.

The foster parents adopted Nellie, and the couple was so grateful to Debbie and Jade for the gift of life. Debbie got to meet the family and had an emotional moment with the little girl. Nellie took off her shirt and let Debbie press her head to her chest so she could hear her daughter's steady heartbeat once more.

Debbie was overcome with emotion, but she's happy that Nellie got to live because of Jade's heart. Thanks to Jade, the two will always share a very special connection.
