The 7-day-old child was found on a sidewalk in Tlaltenango, Zacatecas
Life doesnt prepare you for situations like this.
That was one official response to the discovery of a newborn baby on a sidewalk in Tlaltenango, Zacatecas, Thursday morning. The infant had been wrapped in blankets and placed inside a pizza box.
The child was accompanied by a handwritten note which read, Take care of my grandson. My daughter died while giving birth and I dont have [a way] to support him and I hope he has a better life and God forgive me.
The 7-day-old baby was taken to hospital by Civil Protection agents for a medical evaluation.
The discovery has been making the rounds on social media after Civil Protection announced the child had been found and posted a photo of the note. Life shapes you but it does not prepare you for situations like this, the agency wrote on its Facebook page. Several people have expressed interest in adopting the infant.
Until then, Tlaltenango Mayor Miguel Ángel Varela Pinedo said he would be responsible for the babys expenses, and expressed regret that the child was abandoned for financial reasons.
May your holy mother rest in peace and God forgive your grandmother for this, as the letter says, he wrote on Facebook.
On Friday morning he announced that the infant has been christened Ángel Gabriel and was baptized last night in the name of the people of Tlaltenango. Varela asked the state governor to ensure that baby Ángel is adopted out to people from his region of the state.
As this is “news” in the US, let’s be clear the kid should STAY IN MEXICO.
A. Not everyone sucks! This Grandparent did the right thing.
B. I’ll take him! :)
I think the correct response is to simply pray for this child and family; and not make ‘politics’ of it.
“Mayor Varela asked the state governor to ensure that baby Ángel is adopted out to people from his region of the state.”
Lighten up, Francis.
You beat me by 42 Seconds. ;)
I hope the baby has a FANTASTIC life!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
For all Reno knows, there might be some childless couple in the US who would love to have this baby.
Prayers up for this sweet child and for his Grandmother.
Your compassion overwhelms me.
Tlaltenango, Zacatecas is pretty far south of the border.
I don’t think we have to worry about that baby crawling across the border.
This would be a good case for a gofundme account... instead of some of the weird stuff gofundme usually gets.
The ancient Romans used to do this. Look up “power of the father”. Hope this child has a good chance to do well. Don’t forget Moses.
That’s a thick pizza box or a very flat grandson.
The list of suspects currently include: Papa Johnn and Little Ceasar.
The Godfather is not considered a suspect.
I think the correct response is to simply pray for this child and family; and not make politics of it.
Well stated and seconded.
My prayers for this poor but rescued baby.
Papa Murphy is also suspect.
If so, adopt an AMERICAN child.
Take care of my grandson. My daughter died while giving birth and I dont have [a way] to support him and I hope he has a better life and God forgive me.
That woman has been through a helluva lot in just a few days. God looks out for widows and orphans. Gutwrenching.
