Rachel Mastin has a letter that is very special to her.
From a mother in Georgia, Rachel has yet to meet the author.
“Give my baby boy a hug and tell him ‘I love him,’” one of the last paragraphs of the letter reads.
The boy’s name was M.J. and Rachel is the new owner of his 21-year-old heart.
On Aug. 2, 2007, after several years of heart problems and many, many, many doctor visits, Rachel became the recipient of a heart transplant.
