A nanny was hired to take care of a 10-month-old sick baby girl but it turned out she’s an angel sent for the baby. The hired nanny saved the toddler’s life by donating a part of her liver to the baby.
Kiersten Miles, 22-years-old college student, was hired as a nanny for baby Talia by the Rosko family during summer break. Baby Talia was a 10-month-old joyful baby girl but she is sick.
Talia was born with a life-threatening condition known as biliary atresia. Biliary atresia is a rare disease of the liver and bile ducts that prevents the liver from functioning like it’s supposed to. Baby Talia was in need of a liver transplant to save her life. However, doctors couldn’t do much at that point except put Talia on the organ donor list and hope for the best.
Kiersten became attached to the sweet little girl who she says is always happy despite her illness. So upon finding out that she was the same blood type as Talia, she undergoes a medical test to see if she could be a match for the liver transplant.
The test results show that Kiersten is a match for Talia and she agreed to go through the operation to donate part of her liver.
“I was very taken aback, I didn’t know that she was this selfless — I’ve come to find out that this is who she is. She really is an angel on earth; I know that sounds silly, but she really is.” Farra Rosko, Talia’s mother, said.
It was now more than two years since the successful operation, both Kiersten and Talia recovered well are both are now happily healthy. Kiersten has since been considered not just a nanny, but a member of the family by the Rosko’s.
