This Brave Mom Gave Other Infants a 'Second Chance' by Carrying Her Dying Baby to Term, Donating Organs

Will Maule : Feb 11, 2019

"It warms our hearts to know that [Rylei's life] will give two other babies a second chance at life." -Krysta Davis

To have her baby's organs donated to other children who are in grave need of a transplant. (Photo: Rylei Arcadia: An Unexpected Journey/Facebook/ via Faithwire)

Krysta Davis, 23, was 18 weeks pregnant with her baby daughter, Rylei Arcadia Diane Lovett, when doctors delivered some heartbreaking news—Rylei was suffering with a rare condition called anencephaly, which causes parts of the brain or skull to stop developing.

Davis and her boyfriend, Derek Lovett, 26, were told that it would be impossible for Rylei to live outside the womb...

...Incredibly, after Rylei was born on Christmas Eve, she exceeded all expectations and survived for an entire week.

"She came out star-gazing. She was born face-up," Davis explained. "It was the most overwhelming feeling of love that I've ever felt in my life. Laying eyes on her, I never knew that I could love someone so much. It was insane"...

Following her death, Rylei's heart valves were donated to two children, and her lungs were given to a research hospital, which will use them to better understand the devastating condition of anencephaly... Subscribe for free to Breaking Christian News here
