Newborn baby was found chilled and abandoned in a cardboard box left on the side of the road in the United States last Friday on New Year’s Eve reports CBSNews.
It was Roxy Lane, a resident of the city of Fairbanks in the state of Alaska, who discovered the baby when the outside temperature was 0 ° C (-12 ° C felt because of the wind).
My parents are begging whoever finds me. My name is Teshawn
A letter written a priori by the mother of the baby was also found in the cardboard box: “My parents and grandparents have neither food nor money to raise me. They NEVER wanted to do this to me, ”according to the letter published by the New York Post. “My mom is so sad to do this. Please take me and find me a loving family. My parents are begging whoever finds me. My name is Teshawn. “
There is love, even though she made a terrible decision
“She still gave him a name, it shows that there is love, even if she made a terrible decision”, testified Roxy Lane who discovered the infant.
“Today I saved a baby and I’ll probably be thinking about Teshawn for the rest of my life,” she added.
“We continue to seek the assistance of the media and the public to determine the circumstances”
Law enforcement officials said they were looking for anyone who might have information about the child.
“We continue to seek the assistance of the media and the public in determining the circumstances,” said Tim DeSpain, spokesman for the Alaska Police Force, in a statement.
A law called “Safe Haven”, in force in Alaska, allows families who cannot raise their children, to entrust them to a fire station, to a hospital or even to a church, if they are less than 21 days old.
