After making the decision and running tests, Amber said the family and hospital staff lined up the hall for the "walk of honor."

"Granger and I held each other and cried. We got the letter that our tiny, red-headed hero gave life to 2 adults. A 49-year-old woman and a 53-year-old man. I cried when we opened it," she wrote.

In June, the couple had shared how they were finding the light within the darkness of losing River.

"We're going to constantly search for ways that good will come out of this," Granger said in a video posted to the family's YouTube channel. "That's my commitment to River's legacy."
