    MD - Newborn baby abandoned, Beltsville, 5 Nov 2014, active search for mother

    Prince George’s County Police were trying to find the mother of a newborn baby girl who was found outside near a home in Beltsville on Wednesday.

    Officers were called to the 12600 block of Shoal Creek Terrace around 11:45 a.m. by a resident who heard the infant crying and found her.
    The newborn was taken to a local hospital for care and appeared to be in good health, said doctors, who believe the baby was likely born just hours before she was discovered.

    Police urged anyone who may have information that could help detectives track down the mother to call 1-866-411-TIPS; callers may remain anonymous.

    It was the woman who "found" her .... she was "overwhelmed"

    If the baby is abandoned in good health, why not call the first approved adoptive family on the waiting list? Why all the time and money on searching for the egg donor? Let everyone move on, save time, money and turmoil. Does anyone honestly think this baby would be better off as the 6th child of an overwhelmed single parent versus perhaps an only child or a single sibling child in a 2 parent home where there is not such a day to day struggle with finances, child care, education? I am not saying this birth mother is mean or does not love her kids. Maybe deep in her heart she knows the kid would be better off, too.

    Unless I provide a link or refer to a specific link, all my ramblings are theories, speculation, scenarios based on what info is available and my own unique life experiences.
