Jonathan Pinkard has a new heart and a new family, all thanks to nurse Lori Wood.  This autistic 27-year-old was living in a men’s shelter and in need of a heart transplant when he arrived at Georgia’s Piedmont Newnan Hospital late last year.  Because Pinkard had no one to care for him post-surgery, he couldn’t join the transplant waiting list.  After caring for Pinkard for two days, Wood made her patient a life-changing offer:  If he wanted, she would become his legal guardian.  Pinkard moved in with Wood in January and underwent heart surgery in August; he hopes to be well enough to resume his job as an office clerk soon.  “All I can say is, ‘Thank you, Mama Lori,'” said Pinkard.

We can NEVER get too many stories of Kindness, tales of Compassion, or expressions of Peace.  I wanted to end 2019 with a blast of GOOD NEWS with the hope that 2020 will ring in with LOVE

Love, Kate
