Abandoned Baby To Be Adopted

It's been nine months since a southern Kentucky newborn baby was left on a stranger's doorstep in a shoebox.

But soon, that abandoned baby will be adopted.

The nine month old, named Daniel, was found in a Simpson County apartment complex.

He's been in state custody since.

But now, Daniel will be adopted by a woman who is already taking care of three other children with troubled pasts.

Police have still not figured out who abandoned Daniel.

    Now the lowlife mother will probably show back up and want the baby. And the sad part is, the idiot lawmakers will probably give it back to her!

    It's sad that the mother felt that she had to abandon her child but it's a wonderful thing that he's found a loving family who will become his mom and dad and hopefully give him all the love he deserves. After all, blood alone does not make a family. Hopefully his "birth" mother will see this article and the picture and know that, even though she could have went about it a different way, she made a good decision. Good luck to all involved and Merry Christmas!

    I'm so glad that someone who really loves this little one will get to be his parents! I wish them all the best!

    Such a wondergful conclusion to a situation that we see in the news all too often where the baby was abandoned and/or left to die. Even though the child's birth mother was not ready to take the responsibility, someone else welcomes this little boy into their hearts and lives. It's good to see one of these stories take a turn for the better.

    Thank god that they are people like her in this world. People who can't have kids would love to, and the one's who can just leave them.
