The young woman who drew this picture fell ill one day during college. A few months later, she was diagnosed and the removal of her right kidney returned her body to health. One month ago, she and her husband shared the joy of the birth of their first child!

Wonderfully, the word KID is right above KIDNEY:

kidney \’kid-ne\  n 1 a : one of a pair of vertebrate organs situated in the body cavity. it is a  bean shaped organ 4 1/2 inches long  3 a : temperament, disposition  3 b : kind, sort

this young woman is now one of a pair. it is true, she possesses a truly kind temperament
