Not all of us know how it feels to lose a child, but many women do – and I don’t know how, but somehow their hearts continue to beat.
This story making its way around the internet is absolutely amazing. Becky Turney lost her son Triston – but through organ donation he saved the lives of five others.
Becky was getting married, and her husband-to-be Kelly Turney stopped the ceremony to introduce her to Jacob Kilby – the recipient of her late son’s donor heart. Kelly had flown Jacob in as a surprise to stand up as a groomsman in the wedding. Not only was he part of her special moment, but Becky was able to hear her son’s heart beat on her wedding day.
Love Adventured, LLC was there to capture every moment, and the photos are stunning. Owner & photographer Amber Lanphier posted them to her Facebook page along with the story behind them and they’ve since gone viral.
Head over to Facebook to see the full collection of pictures; I dare you not to cry. This mom is so strong as her heart kept beating after the loss of her son, but in this case, his kept beating right on back.
What an amazing gift for everyone involved.
