Kinsley Kinner: Girl's Father Says She Is an Organ Donor

In early December, two-year-old Kinsley Kinner tragically died from injuries sustained from being beat by her mother's boyfriend Bradley Young. Scott Senft, Kinsley's dad, has decided to turn this tragedy into a holiday miracle for multiple children and their families by donating Kinsley's organs. According to doctors Kinsley's organs could help save up to six lives, including two-year-old Wyatt who received Kinsley's lungs.

Senft uses his Facebook page to give updates on the lives Kinsley has helped saved and also encourages his followers to donate to these families. "My daughter passed, but she's like passing on through everybody in the world," Senft told WCPO Cincinnati. "I had people from literally overseas try to contact me to help me out with everything."

Not only will Kinsley save lives through organ donation, her father has requested that people bring toys to her funeral instead of flowers or money. Senft plans to donate the toys to Toys for Tots so that other children will have a happy Christmas. "...instead of sending flowers, cards, and little bits of money, how bout the day of the funeral part everyone just bring a toy," he wrote in a Facebook post.

Ok I've been putting a lot of thought into this, my daughter has literally changed this whole world and enlightened so...
