THIS Morning viewers were left sobbing today as they met a woman who had donated her son’s heart in order to save another little boy.
Anna-Louise’s husband and son, seven, were tragically killed by a careless driver six years ago and she made the decision to donate her son Fraser’s heart to Roman, a boy with a heart defect.
The brave mum appeared on the show today alongside Roman’s mother Zoe and the little boy himself.
In incredibly moving scenes they revealed how Roman is connected to Fraser in a number of ways.
Zoe started: “Anna sent me a picture of Fraser with a gorilla and when we met Anna for the first time Roman picked a gorilla.”
Anna continued: “The moment I saw Roman, I could just see the character in his eyes.
"His heart and his character just seemed to epitomise the big heart that Fraser had and straight away he designed a football shirt to wear to meet me for the first time in honour of Fraser and that’s exactly what Fraser would have done.”

Asked how proud she feels of her son, Anna said: “I feel pride for both of them. Without Stew (her late husband) and Fraser I don’t know where I would be today and to have this positive to get Elizabeth (her daughter) and I through Christmas again.
“To actually appreciate what the real meaning of Christmas is and it is the gift of life and everybody should appreciate the gift of life, live every day and appreciate each other and for me especially now, my heart has grown again for Zoe and Roman.”
Those watching at home were incredibly moved, as one person tweeted: “Not even 11am and I’m sobbing #thismorning.”
A second added: “Oh my lord, how am I crying before 11am #ThisMorning.”
While third wrote: “My goodness! What amazing families. I can’t see through the tears #ThisMorning.”
And a fourth commented: “What an amazing woman. So dignified & gracious after such tragedy. So much love to her & Elizabeth Red heart #Thismorning.”
