When Talia Rosko was only 9 weeks old, doctors noticed signs of jaundice in her eyes. Further testing revealed that she had biliary atresia, a life threatening condition that prevents the liver from doing it’s job. Talia was immediatly placed on the organ donor list while her family prayed for the best.
George and Farra Rosko, Talia’s parents, met 22-year-old Kiersten Miles and hired her as a nanny to care for Talia and their other two children. Miles immediately fell in love with Talia and began thinking of ways she could help.
It was also the time that Miles realized… she could save Talia’s life.
Miles knew her blood type was O, so after talking to her parents Miles decide to donate part of her liver to Talia.
“I was very taken aback,” Farra Rosko said. “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.”
Miles was concerned that something would go wrong in surgery, but when she woke, the doctors ensured her the procedure was a success. “He told me that I could definitely see her in the next couple of days. He said she was doing great. And when he left, I just started bawling.”
When Miles went to see Talia for the first time, the little one opened her eyes and smiled at Miles in a moment that “just made everything worth it.”
She is just an amazing, selfless woman!
