Nurse adopted abused children

About a year ago, Jacksonville, Florida, nurse Jess Hamm, treated a 14-month old girl named Delilah who had been severely abused. She was malnourished, had several broken bones and a skull fracture. Then Hamm found that Delilah had a twin sister named Caroline who was also being abused and was being treated for similar injuries. There was no chance that either girl would ever be discharged to her biological parents.

Both infants were very weak. Delilah could not even sit up or hold a bottle. Jess says she never really considered adoption until she met them. But that's what she did. She adopted them both. Today they're about two years old and fully recovered. Jess says they are happy, healthy, and meeting all their developmental goals.
