She Adopted A Little Boy: 20 Years Later She Received Shocking News

Few sons or daughters will have the ability to give back with their mom in the manner Jordan McIntosh has selected to give back to his.

His mom, Ingeborg McIntosh, of Phoenix, Arizona, adopted him when he was four years of age and has raised Jordan from delivery.

The family found out she’d want a transplant when she became ill with polycystic kidney disease. Unbeknownst to her, Jordan got himself examined and discovered that he was a match.

Just in time for Mother’s Day, he offered his mom the greatest present: a fresh opportunity at life.

“I feel like this was my calling in life, I guess,” Jordan McIntosh told KPHO. “Hopefully I can do more for her as I get older, but for the moment, it’s the least I could do.”

Over the last few decades, Ingeborg McIntosh has fostered more than 120 children. When Jordan came to her as a baby, she says, it was “love at first sight.” She spent four years trying to decide what sort of home would be best for Jordan. In the end, she decided it was her own.

Jordan says he just wanted to show that kindness will always beget more kindness.

“It might be immediately, or 27 years down the line but something good is going to come your way,” he said.
