At first glance, Emma Watson looks like the average 7-year-old. She has the curiosity and laughter of any other child her age. And she holds her moms hands with the same innocence of most kids.
But the story of Emmas life is anything but ordinary. She was born with half a heart. In her young life shes already had five open heart surgeries.
All of the surgeries that she will have she has likely already had. And the next thing would be a heart transplant somewhere down the line if thats available at that time.
Patti and John Watson are Emmas adoptive parents. They travelled to Rome with her to see her live out her special wish of meeting the pope.
She just looked at him in a way that Ive never seen her look before. She was without words for the first time.
I didnt think we were gonna be that close.
But Emma wouldnt have grown up with the love and care of the Watsons if it wasnt for the last minute courage of her birth mother.
Her birth mother had wanted to have an abortion and decided to back out of that and decided to give her life. And now shes with our family, husband, a huge blessing to our family.
The Watsons leave Rome with a very special moment, one they call breathtaking and that gave them a sense of awe.
Emmas mom says her condition will continue to require special attention. But its evident that she already has two of the most important things a 7-year-old could ask for: love of a family and the gift of life.
