We are a donor family from Georgia that donated our precious baby Jacob’s heart and kidneys. We are a family of strong faith and are lovingly praying for the recipient families. We are praying they are thriving and are blessed with complete recovery. We know all too well those painful waiting hours and we are so delighted that others are given a second chance as a result of Jacob’s death. Jacob will forever live in our hearts and blessed us everyday with his smile. Though our family has been dealing with immeasurable loss, we have found comfort knowing that Jacob could help someone in this special way.
Jacob was 14 months old and our whole family delighted in him. We have a very large, affectionate family so he was always surrounded by love, smiling faces and lots of cuddling. He was such a happy, healthy baby and was forever smiling. Jacob brought so much joy to our lives. It is our hope that the joy he brought us will live on in not only our lives, but also in the recipient family’s lives.
They that love beyond the world cannot be separated by it. Death cannot kill what never dies. ~ Williams Penn
For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 8:38-39
