The world never runs out of good people. Everywhere we go, there are people who are willing to go out of their way to help those who are in dire need of assistance, sometimes, even if they have to put their lives on the line.
Take for example this babysitter who, without hesitation, donated part of her liver to the baby she was taking care of.
Kiersten Miles, a 22-year-old nanny from New Jersey, USA, had been babysitting 16-month-old Talia Rosko for only three weeks when she learned that the poor kid was suffering from biliary atresia, a potentially fatal liver disease. Talia’s central bile duct was not functioning properly, causing bile to accumulate in her liver. In effect, the baby became jaundiced and as the doctors have explained, she only has months to live if she will not receive proper treatment.
Kiersten was hired to look after Talia in the summer of 2016.
When Kiersten heard about Talia’s condition, she searched the internet for possible solutions. Eventually, she found out that organ donation was a possibility, so she suggested it and then filled out the necessary paperwork to determine if Talia and she are a match. The results came out and indeed, they were a match. To say that Talia’s parents were ecstatic was an understatement.
Talia’s parents, Goerge and Farra Rosko, said:
“This is a serious thing, this is not like donating blood. I was very taken aback, I didn’t know that she was this selfless — I’ve come to find out that this is who she is. She really is an angel on earth; I know that sounds silly, but she really is…We didn’t even know her. I thought it was wonderful that she offered, but I didn’t really think it would go through. It’s not something that people do every day.”
Fortunately, the surgery was a success. When Kiersten found out about this, she was overcome with emotion. She said:
“I don’t know if it was all the emotions building up over time, but I asked one of the surgeons if I could see Talia. He told me that I could definitely see her in the next couple of days. He said she was doing great. And when he left, I just started bawling. I think I was just really happy and really relieved at the same time.”
The 14-hour operation was a success.
Kiersten was more than glad to have made a difference in Talia’s life.
Kiersten will no longer be able to donate part of her liver in the future, even if any of her family members will require a transplant in the future but she said that it was all worth it.
Watch the video:
You see, instances like this solidify our belief that there is a greater power that works out there, a certain omnipotent power that gives us exactly what we need at a perfect time. Imagine the odds of Kiersten walking into a home with a baby who needs an organ donor and her turning exactly into a perfect match.
Well, we got one word for it – fate.
This Canadian City Solved Its Homeless Problem in Only Seven Years!
Their inspiring story didn’t even involve kicking vagrants out of town.
Homelessness is a global problem. To illustrate, a United Nations survey back in 2005 tells us it was estimated that over 100 million people were homeless all over the world. Ten years later, that amount has increased, escalated by the refugee crisis in the Middle East, as well as in other parts of the world.
One small city in Canada, however, is doing its share to help end this situation by starting in its own backyard.
Medicine Hat, Alberta used to have a problem with homelessness.
Filipino Street Kid Given Food by Couple Makes Everyone Cry With His Sacrifice
A street kid who got a meal from a couple didn’t think twice about sharing the food with his little sister.
Where there is poverty, it's not uncommon to see a street kid begging for alms in public places. For example, the Philippines — an archipelago made up of 7,107 islands located in southeast Asia — is classified as a developing country. Based on the most recent available data from the Philippine Statistics Authority, 3.8 million Filipino families were poor in 2015. That's around 21.9 million people (out of a population of 100,699,395) living in poverty.
Kids are, perhaps, the most vulnerable in such circumstances. Their families can't afford to buy enough nutritious food so they end up being malnourished. Since they are underfed, the kids are also susceptible to diseases. More often than not, the children also drop out of school. They're either forced to work as vendors or become beggars out of desperation.
This is where the street kid was begging for alms.
Filipino Guy Known for Walking in Heels Also a ‘Boxing Queen’ Who Feeds Street Kids
