Her son may have died, but his heart is still beating

In 2013, Heather Clark of Glendora, Los Angeles, suffered a heart wrenching loss. As a 22 year old mother, she lost her 7-month old son, Lucas, when he was abused by a babysitter’s boyfriend. Lucas was left brain dead in June, 2013 and Heather decided to donate her child’s organs, hoping to gift life to children in need. She hoped that other mother’s out there could be spared the loss and heartbreak that she had to go through.

Lucas’s heart was received by a little girl named Jordan Drake, who is now four years old. Jordan was born with a heart defect which had left her hospitalized for most of her young life. In a video that has gone viral, Heather finally gets to listen to Lucas’ heart that is now beating inside Jordan’s body. Jordan gives Heather a stuffed bear and asks her to press ‘play’. The highly emotional moment leaves Heather in tears, while also reflecting on how her son’s life was able to save so many more.

Dear Sister and Brother,

1. God never fails.

2. God will never turn his back on you.

3. I pray that whatever you are going through in your life, God will show you a way through it and that you be showered with His mercy and grace.

A relationship starts with communication…remember to talk to Jesus daily..
