Woman Who Was Severely Burnt As A Baby Reunites With Her Lifesaver After 40 Years

So rarely, life pleases you with a charismatic miracle. And that might be 'once in a life' incident. For Amanda Scarpinati, the incredible moment was when she met the nurse who cradled her almost forty years ago when she was severely suffering from burns.

Amanda (NewYork) treasured a black and white photo of herself being cared by a nurse at a hospital when she was just three-month-old and had severe injuries. She dreamed of seeing the nurse again to thank her. She had been searching the nurse for almost twenty years. Thanks to the social media that made her dream come true.

She shared her experience like this: 'Growing up as a child, disfigured by the burns, I was bullied and picked on, tormented. I'd look at those pictures and talk to her, even though I didn't know who she was. I took comfort looking at this woman, who seemed so sincere, caring for me.'

They amazingly saw each other in the medical center just a day back.

Susan was just 21 when she happened to cradle Amanda when she was three-month-old. The photo was taken by Carl Howard and was published in Albany Medical Center's annual report in 1977. Susan's name was not included in the report, so Amanda knew nothing about Susan. She searched Susan for 20 years.

Susan Berger finds herself lucky and is extremely happy to see Amanda again.
