A Woman's Adopted Son Returns the Favor . . . By Giving Her a Kidney


Did you get your mom something good for Mother's Day this year?  Never mind.  Because no matter what it was, there's no way it could top THIS.
 
Over the years, a woman in Phoenix named Ingeborg McIntosh has taken in over 120 foster kids.  But 27 years ago, she formed a special bond with a baby named Jordan.  (We're not sure about Ingeborg's age, but she looks to be in her late 60s.)
 
She had to go through a big court fight to adopt him, but finally got custody when he was four, and raised him as her own.  And recently, he got the chance to pay her back . . . BIG TIME.
 
Last summer, Ingeborg found out she needed a kidney transplant because of a genetic disorder called polycystic kidney disease.  And without telling her, Jordan got tested and found out he was a match.
 
She tried to talk him out of it, but he told her that she'd sacrificed so much to keep HIM around, and he wanted to do the same.  So he gave her one of his kidneys last month.
 
The surgery went well and they're both doing great.  Jordan explained that he hopes to do even MORE for his mom in the future.  But for now it was "the least [he] could do."  Meanwhile, his mom says she couldn't ask for a better son.  (KPHO / Fox2)
