    First Lady Melania Trump visited Nicklaus Children's Hospital in Miami Monday to unveil a new healing garden for patients and their families.

    The First Lady unveiled the "Morton and Linda Bouchard Healing Garden" at the hospital, as well as the new name of the "Esrick Dream Foundation Cardiac Intensive Care Floor." She also participated in a butterfly release with a young patient and visited some of the children on the cardiac intensive care floor.

    "It is because of the generous donations of people like Morton and Linda Bouchard, or Steve and Kiki Esrick of the Dream Foundation, that hospitals can offer more care and comfort to children who are already battling to get well," Melania Trump said in a statement. "Thank you to all the generous donors for supporting the hospital and thank you to Jack and Barbara Nicklaus for inviting me to be part of this special occasion. I hope the new garden brings renewed strength to each child that visits."

    Melania Trump is in town with husband President Donald Trump, who was speaking at Florida International University Monday afternoon.
