An incredible reunion 18 years in the making.
In 1995, a baby was abandoned hours after birth as a woman anonymously called 911 and reported the infant had been left in a cemetery.
Charlie Heflin was a volunteer firefighter who found the baby and saved her life.
That little girl, Skyler James, is now all grown up and just graduated high school.
In a touching surprise, she was reunited with her rescuer for the very first time at her graduation party this past weekend.
On "New Day" Friday, James said moving forward she plans to stay connected to Heflin.
"We plan to keep communicating with each other and keep in touch. We don't want to lose connection again."
