A new born baby was found abandoned in a cupbord box in Alaska
An Alaska new born baby was abandoned by the mother with a note asking for a better life, reports say.
The baby was found in a cupboard box near a row of mailboxes by her home by a Fairbanks woman on New Year’s Eve, around 2 p.m., according to the officials. The Fairbank resident Roxy Lane called Alaska state troopers to the scene.
The baby had a handwritten not on it.
"Please help me!!!" the note began.
“I was born today on December 31, 2021 (at) 6 a.m. I was born 12 weeks premature. My mom was 28 weeks when she had me. My parents and grandparents don’t have food or money to raise me. They NEVER wanted to do this to me,’ the note read.
"My mom is so sad to do this,": the note continued. "Please take me and find me a LOVING FAMILY. My parents are begging whoever finds me. My name is Teshawn."
At the time when the newborn was found, the temperatures outside were in single digits and a wind chills of 12 below, according to the National Weather Service.
The authorities were working on identifying and finding the abandon baby boys’ mother.
Lane pleaded with anyone who knew the mother to reach out, as she may be in need of medical attention or ‘might be in a desperate situation, feeling abandoned herself.’
“Clearly, someone in our community felt so lost and hopeless that they made probably the hardest choice of their lives to leave that innocent life on the side of the road with nothing but some blankets and a name,’ she wrote in the post. ‘But she named him! There’s some love there, even if she made a terrible decision.”
“Today I saved a baby and I’ll probably think about Teshawn for the rest of my life,” Lane wrote.
