A pediatric nurse is speaking out about how her dream of becoming a mother came true.
Liz Smith first crossed paths with 2-year-old Gisele in 2016 at the hospital Smith worked.
Gisele was born premature to a mother who had used drugs and the baby struggled with health issues.
The child also had no visitors at the hospital for several months.
Gisele went to live with Smith in 2017.
Smith formally adopted Gisele last October and the 2-year-old is healthier than ever.
