Miracle Kids: Mariana & Gabriela

Updated: Feb 11


  • 5 years old

  • Little sister

  • Loves to color

  • Received care from neonatal intensive care unit

As a newborn, Mariana had trouble breathing. Children’s National Hospital’s rapid

helicopter transport service, SkyBear, rushed her to Children’s National. She received

care in our neonatal intensive care unit for a month.

Today, at age 5, Mariana loves to color, look at books and dance ballet. “She giggles all

the time,” says her older sister, Gabriela. Mariana's favorite color is purple and loves to paint, sing, and she does ballet! “I’m grateful for everyone at Children’s

National. I have my little sister because of that place.”
