Nurse adopts girl who was left alone in hospital for months without family visits

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. After the little girl had no visitors for several months, a co-worker told Ms Smith that the baby needed a medical foster home and she would be the perfect mother for her. The adoption was finalised in October 2018.
