People Who Are Living 3018 While We Are Stuck In 2018
Ingeborg McIntosh had to face a lot of obstacles before she could finally adopt her son Jordon. Ingeborg McIntosh’s family has cared for 125 foster kids over the years, So, when Mcintosh took Jordon when he was a newborn as her foster child, she did not expect him to steal her heart.
Jordan was raised in Ingeborg’s home. Ingeborg spent the next four years convincing the birth mother to let her adopt him. Unfortunately for her, the birth mother had her heart set on placing him in a black family.
Finally, when everyone else rejected Jordon, Ingeborg was finally allowed to adopt him. She says “They placed him in my arms and it was love at first sight, He was a part of the family, no matter what.”
But, 20 years later this relationship took a dramatic turn.
Nearly after two decades the Ingeborg and her family received a devastating news. Ingeborg had polycystic kidney disease and needed a kidney transplant.
As Jordon couldn’t stand and watch his mother suffer he decided to take the reins. He booked an appointment with the doctor to check if he was a match for a transplant. And thankfully he was.
“I feel like this was my calling in life, I guess,” Jordan says. “Hopefully, I can do more for her as I get older, but for the moment, it’s the least I could do.”
Although Ingeborg was against Jordon’s plans, he still went ahead with it.
Jordon only has love and admiration towards his mother. He nearly breaks down everytime he talks about her kindness.
“Everything she’s done for me since I was a kid, I just wanted to give it back to her, and show her how much I appreciate her,” he says.
And this mother and son got their happy ending at last.
