Nanny Donates Part Of Liver To Toddler She Babysits - Kiersten Miles
A babysitter didn't just watch the child in her care, she potentially saved her life.
Kiersten Miles took a job with the Rosko family last summer to care for their 10-month-old baby Talia.
The child was on the organ transplant waiting list to receive a new liver because she was born with a disease that can cause liver failure.
Kiersten says it didn't take her long to become attached to Talia, a sweet child who she says is always happy despite her health problems.
After she learned she shared the same blood type as Talia, Kiersten wanted to see if she could be a match.
Testing showed she was and she offered to go through with the surgery in which she would donate part of her liver to Talia.
It's been a few weeks after the surgery was successfully completed. Kiersten and the child's mother says they are both recovering very well.
Talia's family are so grateful for Kiersten whom they say is not just a sitter but now a member of the family.
