    UK - Toddler abandoned in Folkestone library

    A girl, believed to be two or three years old, has been abandoned in a pushchair in a Kent library.

    Staff at the Folkestone library in Grace Hill discovered the child while they were closing the building at about 18:00 GMT.

    Why???

    One struggles to find a bright side but a library is, in all, not the worst place for the child to have been left.

    Even so of course.

    I know it's terrible, but after some of the cases we hear about - I'm so happy she was left in a safe place, unharmed. Considering what could have occurred....

    July 2012:

    EARLIER this month we reported that a woman from Hythe who left her two-year-old daughter in the Folkestone Library toilets had been charged with neglect and given a one-year supervision order.But the mother says she is unable to love her children – and would do anything to change that...

    "as soon as she was born, that was it, I felt absolutely nothing. No emotion, I didn't even cry. The doctors said I had post-natal depression and that it would go away, but it got worse. I thought if I had more kids, something would kick in – but it never did."
