Lucile Packard Children's Hospital Stanford shared the tale of the serendipitous reunion on Facebook, and the powerful story has gained widespread attention.

"His last name sounded very familiar", she recalled.

She thought she remembered him and asked him whether his father was a police officer.

"There was a big silence", Vilma said, adding "and then he asked if I was Vilma".

Vilma, Brandon says, is famous in his family for being the nurse who cared for him when he was born prematurely. They even provided a photo that was snapped all those years ago of Seminatore sitting on Wong's lap.

Seminatore said, "She cares deeply for her patients, to the point that she was able to remember a patient's name nearly three decades later".

"They were the most wonderful nurses", said Laura Seminatore, who was a kindergarten teacher in 1990 when her only son was born and is now the principal at St. John Vianney Catholic school in San Jose. Wong, who is 54 now, isn't leaving any time soon. Per the Mercury News, Vilma Wong said she asked Brandon Seminatore, MD his name when he began working on her team.

Brandon texted his parents after meeting Vilma, and his dad, a retired police officer dug up a photo of Brandon and Vilma.

Nurse intensive care 54-year-old Wilma Wong cares for premature newborn children for almost 30 years.

Seminatore said his own history in the hospital may have been a factor in his decision to become a doctor.

"As a nurse", she said, "it's kind of like your reward".
