Saint Cloud Girl Gives Brother A Kidney (UPDATE)
Recently I featured the Baca family in our local 411. The Baca's have adopted special needs children in the past, and are in the process of adopting two more beautiful children from China, that tragically, lost both of their parents in a very short time frame. One of the boys is almost too old for adoption, so the Baca's are in a race to get them here before he ages out. In the process of adopting their new sons, they found out that their biological son Max, who has special needs, was in desperate need of a kidney. On top of all of this, the Baca's lost one of their adopted children a few years ago. It has been very trying times for this beautiful warm and loving family.
CHEYENNE GAVE MAX A KIDNEY ON MONDAY
In typical giving Baca nature, when I contacted mother, Karla Baca, The Baca's oldest daughter Cheyenne was in the process of finding out if she could be a match for her brother Max, wanting to give her brother one of her kidneys.
Since then, the Baca's have made it through the two surgeries. Their oldest child Cheyenne went in for surgery to remove a kidney, and then about an hour later, Max went in to surgery to receive that kidney. Both children are doing well.
