Mother Hears Late Daughter’s Heartbeat After Her Donated Organ Was Transplanted | “Got to Hug My Daughter Again”

“As a mother, you listen to your child’s heartbeat when you carry them, and I don’t think you ever ask to hear it again,” Amber Morgan said.

The worst loss a parent can ever endure is the death of a child. The loss not only destroys the parents but also creates a void that can never be filled. But, sometimes destiny works in mysterious ways where you can truly feel the presence of a loved one even if they are not physically present. Amber Morgan lost her daughter Andreona Williams, 20 to asthma issues. Williams decided to donate her organs. The devastated mother was able to hear her daughter's heart beating in 68-year-old Tom Johnson's chest almost four years after her death, according to the Chicago Tribune.

“It’s almost like I got to hug my daughter again,” the South Bend, Indiana woman said. Morgan felt the presence of her daughter, who passed away in 2018, in Tom's chest. The family used the occasion to honor both Andreona's life and Tom's new life following his protracted battle with heart issues. The Indiana Donor Network organized the unusual gathering at a hotel in Chicago. Johnson had a stethoscope put to his chest, and Morgan was listening through it. “As a mother, you listen to your child’s heartbeat when you carry them, and I don’t think you ever ask to hear it again,” Morgan said. “It’s amazing.”
