What is this world coming to? This is the question that you ask yourself when an 8 month old baby is found near death in an outdoor parking lot stairwell at below freezing temperatures, beaten and left to die. And after circulating her photo around for 2 days, no one has come forward to identify her.

This only brings me to think of my daughters' birthmothers and how they lovingly and safely placed their babies in a public area where they were sure that they would be found and taken care of. These women showed my daughters one last sign of love by jeopardizing their own lives to ensure that their daughters had a chance at a better life.

This is not what the parents of this poor 8 month old girl did. My God... what were they thinking?
