Instead of throwing her away.....just give her to me...

Posted by   + Show Post

Can you believe someone threw her away??

She is just a couple of days old and survived being thrown away in a plastic bag.  

Give her to me, I'd love her.

Oh and she was born with a tooth, a rare genetic trait.

Baby Chloe, the newborn abandoned in a plastic bag, will remain with a foster family until she is adopted, a Harris County judge determined Monday.

A judge granted Child Protective Servicescustody of Chloe and she will remain in the foster home where she was placed last week, said agency spokeswomanEstella Olguin.

The next hearing will be on March 25 and CPS will present prospective adoptive parents to the judge. Many callers asked about adoption after Chloe's story was told in media reports.

Chloe was found on Feb. 19 near a Cypress apartment in the 11000 block of Grant by a woman walking her dog. Officials said they believe Chloe was a few hours old. She was taken to Texas Children's Hospital for treatment and then given to a foster family to wait for a court decision.

CPS officials said they hope relatives will come forward so that she can be placed with them or that an adoptive family will have an idea of her background and family medical history. CPS is required to first consider a relative as a custodian if appropriate family members are willing and able to raise the child.

Chloe is living with a dual foster and adoptive family, who will be eligible for adoption if interested in permanently taking care of her.

Her relatives' rights have not yet been terminated, but in such cases when the parents are unknown that process is expedited, Olguin said.

"We are still making an effort to locate the parents," she said. "It would be good to have that kind of information, but we aren't going to continue to let that slow the case."

What is wrong with people!?!
I've always wondered how the hell people do this. If you don't want to care for your baby, that's fine, but at least take her somewhere safe like a hospital or find a family looking to adopt. Such a sweet little face, I hope a loving family finds her.

I couldn't imagine anybody doing that. There are so many ways to do things. Could have dropped her off at a hospital. Anything. I would adopt her. I don't mind having another little girl. I already have two. Lets add another. I swear people don't surprise me anymore. Just breaks my heart to hear about things like this.
