12-Year-Old Girl Pays It Forward By Playing Music For NICU Babies At Same Hospital Where She Was Born

A baby who was born prematurely at a Children’s hospital and had to spend the first few months of her life in the neonatal intensive care unit decided it was payback time.

Isabella Ciriello, is now 12, and has returned to same neonatal intensive care unit at New York-Presbyterian Komansky Children’s Hospital where she was born 16 weeks early in 2006.

She returned there to pay it forward and give back a gift she had received years ago, she played classical music for the patients on her guitar. Years ago, it was Isabella’s doctor who had played music for her as it helps soothes preemies.

Verse of the Day

He was despised and rejected by mankind, a man of suffering, and familiar with pain. Like one from whom people hide their faces he was despised, and we held him in low esteem. Surely he took up our pain and bore our suffering, yet we considered him punished by God, stricken by him, and afflicted. — Isaiah 53:3-4 (NIV)
