With Mother's Day just around the corner (hint hint, better start looking for a great gift for mom now!), I wanted to share this woman's unexpected journey to becoming a mom!
Nurse Liz Smith had struggled to make her dream of becoming a mother a reality. Then her colleagues at Franciscan Children's hospital in Brighton, Massachusetts, told her about Gisele. Gisele was a little girl currently in the hospital's NICU. She had been born prematurely, and needed a mom.
When they met, it was love at first sight, Smith said. "There was something behind her eyes that I connected to and that somehow she connected to me," said Smith, who went on to adopt the little girl and watch her blossom!
