In today's health matters, Florida's first liver transplant patient becomes a mom.

Her child is believed to be the first ever born to two organ donor recipients. She was Florida's first liver transplant patient.This is video from 1985 when we first met little Trine Engebretsen. Her mother making a plea for people to become organ donors.

This is Trine now, 30 years old, married with a baby of her own. Little Anderson Thomas, born last month, is believed to be the first child born to two liver transplant recipients.

That's right!!! New dad, Ryan Labbe, also received a liver in 2008. And after all these years and all the struggles, who could ask for any better gift than this.

After all the time Trine has spent with doctors in her lifetime, she decided to become one herself. She is currently a medical student at FIU's college of medicine.
