First lady Melania Trump visited a children's hospital in Rome. She spent her time on Wednesday coloring with patients, snapping selfies, and speaking to them in Italian.

“My visit to Bambino Gesu Children’s Hospital today was very moving," the first lady said in a statement. "To spend time speaking to and coloring with children who have such a positive spirit despite illness was an amazing gift. The time I spent with the little ones in the Intensive Care Unit is something I will never forget, and I will pray for each of them daily. I want to thank the doctors, nurses, and staff of the hospital, who all do such beautiful and critical work.”

“Upon landing in Belgium, I learned a young boy and his family who had been waiting for a heart transplant was informed that the hospital has found a donor," she said. "I read a book and held hands with this special little one just a few hours ago, and now my own heart is filled with joy over this news.”

The first lady personally wrote a letter to Pope Francis asking to visit the hospital, a spokesperson reported.
