If not for nightly dialysis and nourishment from a feeding tube, the 7-month-old Norco boy could have died.
His family finally received a call in June 2010 after waiting more than a year for a kidney donor.
"You need to come now," a nurse told Emri's mother, Soha Sjostrom.
But elation mixed with sadness when Emri's family found out who was donating the kidney.
It came from a 6-year-old San Bernardino boy named Amarion Adams, who was wounded June 13 in a drive-by shooting and died three days later.
