The love that parents show for their children is unimaginable and while they’re busy, nannies are found taking care of them and end up forming a close bond. Recently, a nanny went beyond her daily chores to donate part of her liver to a toddler she was taking care of.

According to a media report, 22-year-old Kiersten Miles recently decided to donate a part of her liver to a baby she knew for only three months. The baby, Talia, was suffering from a terminal disease when Kiersten was called to take care of her. The doctors had said that if Talia doesn’t get an organ transplant she wouldn’t live for long and so the nanny decided to donate a part of her liver to the toddler so that she could have a healthy life.

As luck would have it, Kiersten was told that her blood group matched that of Talia’s and she could continue with the process. Talia’s mother Farra Rosko said she had never expected the organ donation to happen and especially from the nanny because she didn’t know them that well but she was really happy it happened.
