Baby Found In Plastic Bag In Georgia

Baby Found In Plastic Bag In Georgia: According to the state’s head of child services, hundreds of people are “waiting in line” to adopt the infant.

Who was abandoned in a plastic bag in the woods and rescued by Georgia sheriff’s deputies earlier this month.

She’s doing pretty well,” Georgia’s Division of Family and Children’s Services Director Tom Rawlings told USA TODAY on Friday.

He continued: “She’s gaining weight, she’s quite happy… and she loves to be sung to.

After a nearby family heard wailing, deputies with the Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office discovered the newborn, who has since been called baby India, in a plastic bag in a forested area of Cummings, Georgia.

Rawlings stated, “The miracle here is that this child persevered.” It’s a good thing someone heard her scream. She did the only thing she knew how to do: she cried.

A newborn baby girl with the umbilical cord still connected was discovered on the side of the road in near-freezing conditions in California.

Deputies ripped open the bag and wrapped weeping India in a blanket, according to body camera video provided by the sheriff’s office from the girl’s rescue. Authorities hope that by sharing the footage, they will be able to obtain information that may assist them in locating her parents.

In Georgia, there are roughly 200 families on a waiting list to adopt small children like India. Still, child services have received “hundreds of calls and social media posts” about her, according to Rawlings.

On Friday, Rawlings told ABC’s “Good Morning America” that “we have folks standing in line to provide that child with a forever home.”

At a Texas hospital, a 14-pound, 13-ounce baby set a new weight record.

Officials will strive to be as objective as possible while choosing a home for India, and Rawlings said he isn’t concerned because of her age, given the circumstances of her rescue.

I don’t think the trauma will have any long-term consequences,” he told USA TODAY.

Rawlings expressed gratitude to law enforcement for disseminating the rescue video because it raised awareness about the needs of children in foster care. While hundreds of families wait to adopt small infants and toddlers, older children, according to Rawlings, deserve to be placed in loving homes as well.

‘I did it for the parents,’ says the dad, who posted a photo of himself ‘breastfeeding’ his infant when his mother couldn’t.

Rawlings is optimistic about India’s prospects.

He added, “She has a long life ahead of her.” “Her abandonment occurred under horrible circumstances, but I believe her life will be beautiful.
