Man gives adoptive mom his kidney as a Mother’s Day gift

PHOENIX — A 27-year-old man in Phoenix gave his adoptive mom his kidney for Mother’s Day.

According to CBS5, Ingeborg McIntosh became sick with polycystic kidney disease and needed a transplant.

McIntosh, who has kept more than 120 foster kids, didn’t have to look far for a donor. Her 27-year-old son Jordan, whom she adopted at birth, wasted no time stepping up.

“I kept telling him up until almost the time of the surgery, you can back out, and he said, ‘no mom, I want to do this for you,'” said McIntosh. “He goes, ‘you took me in and now I want to do this for you.’ Can’t ask for a better son.”

The surgery was completed last month. Now, mother and son will celebrate together on Mother’s Day.

Jordan told CBS5 after his mom fought so hard to keep him around, it was an easy decision.
