Nearly 30 years after they first crossed paths at Lucile Packard Children's Hospital Stanford, a nurse discovered her colleague was a premature baby she treated.

PALO ALTO, Calif. -- Thousands of people on social media are sharing a photo showing a heart-warming reunion between a neonatal intensive care unit nurse and one of her former patients.

Lucile Packard Children's Hospital Stanford shared a photo on its Facebook page calling it a chance encounter.

Nurse Vilma Wong discovered her new colleague was the premature baby she cared for 28-years ago.

Brandon Seminatore is healthy and is currently a second year pediatric neurology resident at Packard Children's.

During his morning rounds on the NICU last month, Vilma recognized his name and asked him some questions before confirming her suspicions.
