The miracle of life can sometimes be too much for some people. Maybe they aren’t ready for a child, or don’t have the capabilities to look after it. Maybe it has come at the wrong time, or they just don’t want kids. But, whatever the reason, there is no excuse to just abandon a baby. That’s what happened this week in Georgia, but somehow the “miracle baby” is pulling through.
Police were called to a suspicious package in the woods in Cumming, Georgia. The Forsyth’s County Sheriff’s Office responded, and found an unbelievable discovery. A baby had been wrapped in a mat and then a plastic bag and left abandoned in the woods. It was newly born, and still had the umbilicle cord attached and placenta with it.
However, officers found the baby was miraculously still alive. They dubbed her the “miracle baby”, and took her straight to hospital. Wrapped in an officer’s shirt, they checked her vital signs to find she was largely unharmed.
The Future For The Miracle Baby
Now, she has been given foster parents and has made an incredible recovery. Named baby India, police released footage of them finding her in the hopes of getting in touch with her biological mother. The department also took this opportunity to remind parents of the safe haven law active in all 50 states. “This law allows a child’s mother to leave her baby, up to 30 days old, with an employee of any medical facility including any hospital, institutional infirmary, health center or birthing center in Georgia without prosecution.”
This makes it much safer for the child, and your conscience will be clear knowing that your baby has a safe home, whether you can look after it or not.
