This is the story of Amanda Scarpinati, a woman reunited with the nurse who took care of her when she was a baby. This story proves how pictures can keep the past alive.

In 1977, Scarpinati was only 3 months old. It was then when she fell from a couch onto a hot-steam humidifier, a fact that caused her severe third-degree burns.

Then the little baby was rushed to the Albany Medical Center In New York, where a young nurse cared for her. The only thing left from the nurse were some black and white pictures showing the nurse holding the baby.

Later, as a child, Scarpinati had to undergo several surgeries; she was often bullied by her classmates because of her disfigured face.

As Scarpinati mentions today, she couldn't forget her nurse because she gave her what she needed for the rest of her life: comfort, love and patience. So Scarpinati started searching for her everywhere.

At last, social media helped her find the nurse. She shared her pictures with her nurse - the only memory left - on her Facebook page writing: “I would love to know her name and possibly get a chance to talk to her and meet her. Please share as you never know who it could reach.”

Her post went viral really fast. You won't believe what happened next...

As Scarpinati told the Associated Press, she was really tormented as a child: “Growing up disfigured by the burns, I was bullied and picked on. 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.”

She hadn't seen the nurse for 38 years and she was practically searching for her for 20 years, with no luck. After she decided to use social media to search for her nurse, she finally received the message she had been waiting for her whole life: Angela Leary, who worked with the nurse at the hospital that year, identified her as Susan Berger.

Berger was then 21 years old. Now, 38 years older and Executive Vice President of New York’s Cazenovia College, she finally reunited with Scarpinati. She remembered her as a baby: “She was very peaceful. Usually when babies come out of surgery, they’re sleeping or crying. She was just so calm and trusting. It was amazing.”

“I don’t know how many nurses would be lucky enough to have something like this happen, to have someone remember you all that time,” Berger said. “I feel privileged to be the one to represent all the nurses who cared for her over the years.”

Below you can watch at the heartwarming video in which the two women reunite:


Nurses' job shouldn't be underestimated. Scarpinati's dedication to the woman who actually saved her should be a lesson for all of us. History has proven that women can show great strength in their work.
