Sky News:- A nurse has adopted a little girl she took into her care after she had no hospital visitors for several months.
Liz Smith, 45, had always wanted to have a baby of her own but suffered from infertility.
On the same day she found out she was ineligible for IVF in 2016, the senior nurse was introduced to then three-month-old Gisele.
The baby had been suffering from neonatal absence syndrome when she was transferred to the Franciscan Children’s Hospital in Boston, Massachusetts.
Gisele’s condition was a result of being exposed to narcotics during pregnancy and she had to be weaned off drugs as a result.
After the little girl had no visitors for several months, a member of hospital staff asked Ms Smith if she had been introduced to the child.
