The story on The Daily Mail about a heart transplant patient who fell in love has really brought tears to my eyes this morning. Marc Sparks said it is a beautiful story that makes you believe in love at first sight- or something bigger.
Connor Rabinowitz needed a heart. When he was a teenager, he suffered from a genetic heart condition that left his heart nearly useless. At 17-years-old, Connor received Kellen’s heart. Connor said that while it was the best day of his life, he knew that someone had to die in order to make it so. He had mixed feelings about receiving the heart. Then he met Erin Roberts, Kellen’s sister.
When they met, Erin was 26-years-old and Connor was 17-years-old. He said it was love at first sight. An instant chemistry was clear between them. The couple did not pursue anything due to their age difference. However years later the two were reunited and found that the chemistry was still there. The two are now a happy couple and feel that Kellen brought them together.
