Mom Hears Son’s Heartbeat After His Death

A mom in Arizona donated her son’s organs after he died in 2013. Recently, she met with the family of one of the lives he saved.

In 2013, 7-month-old Lukas passed away after being left with a trusted babysitter whose boyfriend abused the tot. Despite her grief, Heather decided to donate his organs to other needy children. She probably never thought she’d see them at work again. But this weekend, she did just that.

Born with a congenital heart defect, Jordan Drake had spent most of her life at Phoenix Children’s Hospital. Then, on June 22, 2013, all of that changed when she received a new heart — Lukas’s heart.

This weekend, the two families met for the first time — and Heather Clark heard her son’s heart beat in Jordan’s chest.
