Florida Nurse Adopts The Abused Twins After Treating Them In The Hospital
March 12, 2018
It is estimated that about 1,670 children died in the United States as a result of abuse in 2015 alone. And about 700,000 children are said to be abused annually in the country.
Children in their first year have also been identified as most likely to suffer abuse or neglect. They account for almost 25% of all cases. It is even more disturbing that four out of five abusers are parents of these children.

Another sad tale of abuse in Jacksonville, Florida has ended with loads of smiles. Twins Delilah and Caroline were admitted to Wolfson Children’s Hospital where nurse Jess Hamm worked. They were only 1 at the time. The toddlers were victims of non-accidental trauma.
