A woman from Alabama, USA, ended up saving the life of the police officer that had arrested her on a number of times by donating one of her kidneys to him.
Such amazing to hear despite all the chaos that is happening in the world right now.
Jocelynn James, who was once a drug-addicted person, saw on Facebook that Terrell Potter, a former police officer who had arrested her on a number of occasions, was in need of a kidney transplant.
James saw the post on social media and reached out to the daughter of the former cop.
She offered to donate one of her own kidneys to the cop who had arrested her numerous times.
40-year-old Jocelynn James has now been sober for years, however, she once battled drug addiction so badly that she lost her job and car.
She also carried out break-ins to fund her drug addiction.
From 2007 and 2012, she was arrested by the police 16 times and was also listed on the ‘Most Wanted’ list.
Talking about how she changed, James said that she was watching TV one night and saw her name. this is when she said she was just sick and tired of living such life.
The next day, she turned herself over to the police and stayed in jail for 6 months.
James also went into rehab for 9 months and right now, James is helping other women that are in the same shoes she was once in.
Terrell Potter was told that he had to wait for 7 to 8 years for a new kidney.
When James saw the post, she said she had to do something about it.
Recalling the moment when she saw the Facebook post that was made by the daughter of Terrell Potter, she said:
I just saw that the man needed a kidney and the Holy Spirit spoke to me and said ‘you have that man’s kidney.’ It was that simple. And I threw my phone down and I was like, ‘God, I don’t have time to give a man a kidney. I literally work 78 hours a week.’
James donated her kidney to the cop this year at the Vanderbilt University Hospital in Nashville.
The 2 are currently doing well.
Potter, the police officer, talked about the fact that James gave her kidney to him despite arresting her a couple of times.
That’s one of the most unlikely candidates for someone to give you a kidney: somebody you put in jail. And if you asked me for a list of a hundred people who would give me a kidney, her name would not be on that list. Because we had no contact or anything. I just would’ve never picked her name out. But I’m so thankful that God put her in my life again.
This is just amazing and you have to share this with your friends and family!
