The heart of a New York City foster child who died from a brutal beating has been donated to a 1-year-old Baltimore girl.

The announcement was printed in the funeral program for 18-month-old Louis Dewayne Mosley, who was buried Wednesday.

Mourners at the Brooklyn church included passersby, parishioners, police, hospital workers, and his birth and foster mothers.     

His death on March 28 was declared a homicide. He suffered blunt force injuries, cuts, broken ribs and damage to his lungs.     

Prosecutors allege Louis was beaten by his foster mother's boyfriend.     

The Rev. Mark Lane told mourners he wished life had a rewind button, so that things could have turned out differently.

Authorities originally gave the toddler's name as Kymell Oram; that last name is his birth mother's.
