A Louisiana mother's three-year-old adopted son needs a transplant and she's crediting God after finding out that she is a perfect match for him. Jeanne and Eli Backer didn't consider themselves as possible donors for their son Jaxon who has end-stage disease.

Jeanne told CBN News Jaxon has been on dialysis his whole life and receives treatments at home each night lasting nearly 12 hours. "He's been on dialysis since he's been born," she said. "For a three-year-old that's a lot to stay in one spot for, but he's finally big enough for a transplant."

Even though family members and friends were willing to get tested to see if they were a match for the young boy, Jeanne was hopeful that she would be the one. "We were the first ones to get tested. I prayed from the very beginning that it would me because I wanted it to be mine," she told CBN News. She added, "We didn't think it was possible at all. It's definitely a God thing."

"It seems like God has always stepped in even when we weren't noticing," she said. "You can't deny that it's God that has done all these things with the adoption." Jeanne continued, "It's way more amazing than we could have imagined. We couldn't imagine life without our two boys that God put into our lives. It seems impossible that that could even happen."

I had my first kidney transplant in TORONTO's SICK KIDS's HOSPITAL as well but I was able to hold on a few years til I was 16. I was on dialysis for a short time that time around. Kept that transplanted kidney til I was 27. It was a perfect match. I hope this time around I get a perfect match as I hear they last 30 years now.
