Photographer Shares Heartbreaking Photos of 2-Year-Old Who Died Waiting For a Heart Transplant

Two heartbroken parents are sharing a group of very private photos of their family's last moments with their 2-year-old daughter, who passed away waiting for a heart transplant. Adalynn, who was born with a congenital heart defect (CHD), was being assisted by a left ventricular assist device (LVAD) - a mechanical pump implanted inside a person's chest that helps a weakened heart pump blood. Although these pumps can be lifesaving, Adalynn unfortunately experienced complications as a result of her LVAD and developed a dangerous blood clot, which traveled to her brain, leaving her brain-damaged and therefore rendering her ineligible for a heart transplant.

Suha Dabit - a photographer, the founder of World of Broken Hearts, and mom to a daughter who received a heart transplant - captured Adalynn's final moments with her parents, Justin and Kristi, and her three siblings, and the photos will absolutely wreck you.
