Derek and Katie Smith, two Americans, celebrated their wedding towards the end of November 2019, during which the young girl prepared a magnificent gift for her husband, capturing the attention of all the ceremony guests.
The surprise turned out to be so touching that Derek couldn’t hold back his feelings and burst into tears in front of everyone.

The boy’s family made the decision to donate his organs to those in need.
