This little girl found an abandoned newborn and did what his mother didn’t have the courage to do. Not more than a day old. She was left in the cold on that concrete platform. Her umbilical cord was clipped off. It was not even dry.
She was crying so loudly. Abandonment occurs in so many ways. One can be around daily and emotionally abandon their children, so if this occurred, most have had to learn to survive and love themselves or at least carrying on in their lives because they choose life, many people survive these emotional traumas and go on to thrive.
They may carry trust issues, might even lack the need to ever parent for fear that they might have similar DNA. Whereas I do know people abandoned at birth or orphaned and they desired large families and they give their all.
Abandonment can be a very painful experience and is a form of emotional neglect which can cause deeper issues down the road. If you have ever experienced abandonment, it would be a good idea to meet with a counselor or therapist who specializes in abandonment. There are also a lot of good books out there that you can read that will help you identify the impact that it may have had on you if not treated.
It can lead to relationship problems and the inability to have true intimacy with another human being. Parents need to be constantly attuned to their child’s needs and be able to adjust the level of permissiveness to the child’s needs as their needs change and evolve.
While it’s important for children to learn and incorporate certain basic habits to succeed academically and socially, it’s also important that children learn to enjoy life every day as they develop and live their lives. Parental outlook and values shape children’s attitudes, so parents need to be mindful of their own outlooks and how their children perceive them. Loving them is going to make all the difference in the world. Studies show that if they have a caring adult, it will go a long way to help them feel good about themselves. You’ll be the one who makes the biggest difference by how you treat them and love them.
They call baby Unknown. He does not have a name yet because his family abandoned him as soon as he was born. Rescued by a good Samaritan, this little girl who asked her father to help this baby. This baby girl was turned over to police. She has been admitted to the hospital where she is fighting to overcome serious respiratory distress and infection.
Sofia did everything she could for saving this baby. How this mother was so cruel to leave a child and Pin alone. Sophia’s parents were surprised to see their little girl rolling a stroller with a baby inside into the house. Unfortunately, they couldn’t keep the child and tried to visit him often at the orphanage. Sadly, the boy was sent to a foster home years later, but one day their doorbell rang incessantly and the boy was right there, so Sophia’s parents had to make a tough choice.
Mom, look, seven year old Sophia yelled from the outside as she rolled a stroller into their house. Sophia, come in quickly. It’s raining, her mother, Lillian replied from the kitchen window before focusing her eyes and noticing the stroller. What is that? It was in the park.
No, mommy came for it ever. I couldn’t leave it. Sophia gained agitated. Okay, let’s just get you dry and the baby too, all right, Lillian replied and brought a towel so her daughter could dry off while she checked the baby. Luckily, the infant had been covered enough that he wasn’t wet at all.
She cooted him and rocked him a bit before putting him back in the stroller, placing her hands on her hips. Can we keep him, mom? I’ll be a good sister. I can help, Sophia begged, seeing her mother, thinking. We’ll talk about it later, sweetheart, when your father gets home now, go change your clothes or you’ll get sick, Lillian stated, smiling to appease her daughter, but she was worried.
Who would leave a child in the park? Their neighborhood, Malacaster Groveland in St. Paul, Minnesota, was pretty safe. However, this was horrible. Lillian picked up the baby once more, noticing him getting fussy, and then she saw a piece of paper on the stroller.
There was a note was written in pencil and the letters seemed rushed, which told Lilian that whoever abandoned the baby had tried to be Swift about it. She started reading it. To whoever finds this letter, please forgive me. I’m only 19 and my husband died in a car accident. I have no money and no one left.
I can’t take care of him anymore. I didn’t know what else to do. I know this baby will bring happiness to someone in this neighborhood. Please take him in, Lilian’s eyes glistened. That poor girl.
She thought it was hard enough to be a mom even when you had a support system, and this woman felt lost after losing her husband. She couldn’t blame her too harshly, although it would have been better to leave the baby somewhere more secure. But now it was up to Lillian and her family to figure out what to do when her husband, Mark, got home, she showed him the letter and asked if he might be interested in adopting the baby. He was not opposed to the idea, but they still had to call authorities. In the end, they decided not to take him in.
Sofia cried and yelled when CPS came to take the baby, but the social worker promised that they could visit the baby at the Children’s Home Society. Sophia badgered them to take her to the orphanage at least once a week, and years went by like that. The little boy, whom they called Paul, grew to think of them as family and smiled happily whenever they came over. Even Mark went to those visits several times. When they left, he and Lilian revisited the idea of adopting him once more, but they never reached a decision and said they would talk about it later.
One day, an employee at the orphanage told them that Paul had finally been placed with a foster family and he might be adopted soon. But we can still go visit him, right, mom? Sophia asked enthusiastically. Lillian looked at the employee, who frowned and shook her head slowly. So she leaned down a bit.
Honey, you’re already twelve years old, so I’m going to talk to you like we’re both adults, okay? She began, and Sophia smiled and nodded. We can’t go visit him. Paul needs to bond with his new family and have a chance at getting adopted. Also, we can’t just go to a stranger’s house whenever we want.
Sophia wanted to protest, but her mother had called her an adult and she didn’t want to prove her wrong. Therefore, she took the bad news with maturity and they returned home. The preteen wished the best for the little boy she started to think of as a brother and tried to forget about him. What they didn’t know was that Paul didn’t forget about them. One day, Sophia was in the kitchen making sandwiches for everyone in the house when the doorbell rang.
It wouldn’t stop. Sophia froze with a ketchup bottle in her hands, and they looked toward the door. What’s going on, Mark? Ask, putting down the newspaper he was reading. I’ll get it, I guess, Lolian muttered, angry at whoever was outside ringing the Bell incessantly, but her mouth dropped when she opened the door.
It was Paul. Paul, what are you doing here? Sophia’s eyes widened and she ran to join her mother. Paul, you’re here? She exclaimed in delight.
You told me where your house is. I took Mr. Garner’s phone and use the maps. Little Paul showed them the phone and they all looked at him in surprise. Mark grabbed the phone as they ushered the boy inside.
You’re telling me you use GPS to get here? But did you use the keyboard? Mark asked, looking at Lilian in complete shock. He was a five year old using Google Maps like it was so easy. What is a bird? I told Siri to go to McAllister in Groveland to visit Sophia. I don’t like my new house. I wish I could come to my old house, Paul answered. Sophia grabbed his hand and they went to her room. This is amazing.
He just ran from his house and found us barely getting our address right. I can’t believe it, Mark marveled with his wife. But Darling, we have to call his foster parents or the children’s home. I know, I guess we could. Lilian started, but tailed off as she stared towards her daughter’s bedroom.
Mark made a decision right there. They called the orphanage, informing them of what Paul had done, and Mark also told them they were interested in Adopting Him. The Social Worker Was Not Sure Until Paul Told Them He Didn’t Like His New Placement. They Had To Call The Garner Family Also And Return Their Phone. The Couple Was Sad That Paul Didn’t Want To Live With Them Anymore, But They Couldn’t Do Anything About It.
I Mean, If He Managed To Find Your House Like This, It Must Be Fate That He Should Stay With You, Mrs. Garner Told Them. Lillian And Mark Agreed. They Finally Started The Adoption Process And Got Paul Almost Immediately. Sophia Could Not Have Been Happier, Although Her Parents Often Kicked Themselves For Not Adopting The Boy From The Beginning.
But they Couldn’t Change The Past. And Right Now, They Look Forward To A Future With Both Their Children. The Kind Of Parents That Abused And Neglected Their Kids. Parents Need To Remember They Will Be Elderly And In Need Of Care For Many Years When They Were Raising Kids Want To See A Person Who Abandons A Parent. It’s The Scared, Lonely, Abused Child Whose Parents Abandoned Them.
This Is The Rule Of Kids Who Abandon Their Parents. They Do It To Survive. They Could Not When They Were Vulnerable. Now they Can, And They Do. A Child Abandoned By One Parent May Have A Different Response From One Abandoned By Both.
An Abandoned Child Raised By A Loving Family Who Make It A Practice To Reassure The Child And Get Counseling For Him Or Her As Needed Will React Differently From One Left To Fend For Himself Without The Caring Support He Or She Needs. On Average, either Children Who Experience Abandonment Wind Up With Attachment Disorders.
They Cannot Connect To Others Very Easily At All. Or Their Low Sense Of Self Worth Makes Them Easy Prey For Anyone Who Gives Them Attention so they Attach To The Wrong People. Depression, Anxiety, And Other Disorders Are Not Uncommon In Abandoned Children.
