  1. I feel so bad for this baby. I hope the Minister is the foster parent or adopted parent, as she seems to be a great mother of her son. I wish i could help some how.

  2. Did they check the occupants of the home where the child was left to see if there are any Male residing there? If so,a DNA should be done on the baby and whoever adult Male resides there.Not saying there is a reason for leaving the child there,but there very well could be. Everything should be investigated..
