MIAMI (AP) -- Two liver transplant recipients are speaking out
about the birth of their healthy baby boy in Miami.
At two years old, Trine Engebretsen made news headlines when she
received her liver transplant in Pittsburgh. She was among the few
young patients known as "Reagan children" because then-President
Ronald Reagan used his radio addresses to generate public interest
in organ transplantation.
Engebretsen's husband also had a liver transplant. Their son, born in July, is believed to be the first baby born to two liver transplant recipients.
The 30-year-old Engebretsen will be addressing the media Wednesday at Jackson Memorial Hospital in Miami.
