Boy meets with family of donor who saved his life

Posted: Updated:

Connected by chance but now bound together for life, a little boy got to meet with the family of the man who saved his life.

It's the first time Mary and Andrew Sinanan are coming face to face with the boy who is living a normal 5-year-old life, thanks to their loved one.

Mary and Andre Sinanan were forced to decide whether to donate their son Adam's organs after he suddenly died at the age of 27.

Soon after, Crystal Chico received a call stating that her then 3-year-old son Noah would be getting a kidney he's been waiting for.

"God only knows if he'd be here if she hadn't made that decision," said Chico.

Adam's organs helped save the lives of five different people, and his mother Mary has communicated with some of them in the past, but Noah is the first she's ever met in person.
