    I'm so glad this sweet child was found before it was too late. From the pictures it seems he was close to the road so maybe whoever put him there was hoping he would be seen.

    The picture of the rescue personnel, especially the one holding the little guy, made me smile. You can tell they know they are holding precious cargo (an old term my mom used to use).

    I am glad the baby was found. Hopefully they will find out who dropped it off. I never understand when I read stories like this how someone can just leave them to fend for themselves all alone.

    What a picture, that paramedic practically running into the ER with the baby, but looking down into his little face.

    I'm so grateful he was found in time. Oh my.

    I guess all the resources society have made available to relinquish infants safely is no match for the shame or the selfishness that led to this abandonment. You can't legislate against human stupidiy :( . Good luck sweet little boy, welcome to the world.

    You would think that the mom dumping that baby could have at least wrapped him in a blanket or shirt, or anything. Sweet little pumpkin.

    Our society no longer has values. If you have any these days, you are mocked. It is a very sad time in this country.

    I found that picture especially moving too. Just seeing the EMT cradling the baby and looking down into his face just appears he's reassuring the baby "it's okay buddy, we got cha!"
    Very heartwarming!

    Or dropped him off at the daycare that was apparently 100 yards away. Thank God the baby is ok.

    I wonder if it was the mom that dropped the baby off. For some reason the first thing that popped into my mind was that the father might have done it. Didn't want the baby so as soon as he was delivered he dropped him off by the side of the road. I would think if the infant were only a couple hours old then someone other than the mother was driving that white car (if it was involved at all).

    Especially when there are much better ways to do this. The day care center was so close.

    I am glad to hear that the baby is safe and doing well. Thank god for the woman who called.

    When I read the thread title, I thought it was an update on the baby who had been found in Florida covered with ants. It is very disheartening to see yet another story of an abandoned baby. Does human life mean nothing anymore? Why have a baby only to toss it aside?

    I agree..why not give the child up for adoption?? There are wonderful couples out there who cannot have children but I'm sure would provide this baby with a loving and wonderful home. God that just really angers me.

    Anyways, yeah, I sort of thought someone might think that from the thread title, but these cases are so similar (just out of a different state) and so I really didn't know how to word it.

    I just can't imagine anyone doing this - teenage mom, cheated on my husband mom, psycho mom, drugged up mom, "I was scared" mom, "don't want a baby" mom or dad, stole the baby kidnapper, "I'm on the run" mom, "I didn't know about the safe haven law" mom - no scenario in my mind can fathom this or similar situations where infants (or older children either) are abandoned like this. It happens way too often and I don't know what the answer is. Thank God this one was found in time!
