ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - A woman will finally meet the nurse who cared for her as a severely burned infant, after a Facebook search revealed the identity of the nurse in 37-year-old photographs from a hospital publication.

Amanda Scarpinati of Athens, 30 miles south of Albany, posted a 1977 photo on her Facebook page a week ago showing herself as a heavily bandaged 3-month-old baby in the arms of an Albany Medical Center nurse. She asked people to share it to help find the nurse who had treated her with such loving care.

Angela Leary, a former Albany Med nurse, helped identify the nurse in the photo as Susan Berger, now a nurse in Syracuse.

The women will reunite at the Albany hospital Tuesday afternoon.
