CHICAGO (AP) - The parents of a Memphis 2-year-old say they can now think about their daughter’s future after she underwent a liver transplant that at one point was threatened by a snowstorm.

After a year waiting for a liver, Jesse and Nicholas Faris got the call Wednesday that one was available in Chicago.

The Faris family, who adopted Brooklyn from China last year, didn’t know how hard it would be to find a flight.

Jessie Faris told the Chicago Tribune (https://trib.in/1QlEptw) that although the storm was mostly outside Chicago, flights to the city were canceled.

The Faris family was finally able to get a flight on a FedEx plane from Memphis to Chicago.

Jesse Faris says the flight was able to get the family to Lurie Children’s Hospital before a Thursday deadline.
