The headline of our local paper this morning read: BABY LEFT IN BAG!...........My heart is breaking! I cannot fathom what could drive someone to abandon a few hour old baby, in a Wal-Mart bag, outside, in 19 degree air. Praise the Lord she is going to be okay, physically. But know I have to ask, Why? There are far too many resources out there for women who find themselves in the position of an unwanted pregnancy. Millions of people would love to adopt a child. So why does this kind of thing happen? I'm not sure that anyone can answer this. I look at my children and thank God for them every day!
Please pray for this new baby, that she may grow up healthy and strong and also pray for her mother. That she may get the help that she needs. She must be in a very desperate situation to do something so horrible.


  1. So so sad. I agree with you, how anyone could do this. Hopefully she will end up in a loving home.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog today.

  2. This kind of stuff breaks my heart. I've been trying for a baby for 6 years and then ppl like this have one and don't even realize what they have. I'm so glad the baby is alive.

  3. That is crazy. In Michigan, we have a safe haven law. Bring a baby, up to three days old to the hospital. No questions ask. But, babies are still dying. Ever since having my babies, I cry when I hear horrible things happening to children. I have to run to their rooms just to make sure they are okay. I am glad the baby is alive.

  4. Sadly, PA has a safe haven law too. This happened not very far from a hospital where the baby could have been safely dropped off. No Questions asked.

  5. This kind of thing just makes me INSANE! My sweet son and his wife cannot have children...and they ache with the need to be able to love and raise a child. How could anyone just throw such a precious gift away??

  6. stuff like this breaks my heart. my arms are WIDE open for a child...any child. and there are women and girls blessed with children they don't even want and dispose of them in the most disgusting way. kills me.

    on a happier note...

    i left you a little love over on my blog. you. are. welcome.

  7. It's so sad that almost nothing I read in the paper or hear on the news surprises me anymore. It's like the shock value is gone. Nonetheless, I can't understand how people think that human life is disposable. I'll never get it! I will say a prayer for that precious baby!!


Thanks for visiting! Come back again!
