Why carry the baby

Updated on June 26, 2015

The question everyone kept asking was why did she carry the baby at all. You see, it still baffles me how someone could allow herself to be pregnant, carry the pregnancy (baby) for nine months then throw the baby away after delivery.

Walking down the street, i saw a crowd so i stopped to know why such crowd at that hour of the morning,everyone wore a sad face and i couldn't hold my emotions seeing the tiny baby wrapped in a tiny dirty rag and dumped near the waste bin.

Tears rolled down my eyes as i shook my head in dismay, why didn't the mother of this baby have a change of heart and take it to the motherless home instead of this place? I questioned. How can she be so cruel? So many good and wonderful women are searching for fruit of the womb and this bastard threw hers away; this world is just irrational i concluded.

I was among the few that wasted more time at the scene,i actually wanted to leave but a kind of force held me and that same force moved me to go closer to the baby, what i actually wanted to do was to wrap it properly and maybe call the police or find something,dig a shallow grave and bury it but as i bent my hand to fold the dirty rag,i heard a tiny voice. I wasn't sure of the voice but i heard it again then it dawned on me that the baby was alive.

I shouted with some sort of relief... "He is alive, he is alive,he is crying".

I didn't even know the sex of the baby but kept waving at the crowd and shouting that he is alive then i carried it and behold, a tiny baby boy,there was still blood all over him. I immediately removed my shirt and wrapped the baby in it, then walked back to the jubilating crowd. One man in the crowd began singing a gospel song..."He is a miracle working God"; and we all joined the chorus as we marched to the police station to report the situation.

I have never felt relieved in my life the way i felt after this baby was taken to the motherless home. I am so happy that i walked that route that morning and happier that i decided to bury this baby then found out that he was alive. Maybe one day he will have the chance to be under the care of good adopting parents because there is a reason why this baby was saved. I visited him yesterday at the motherless baby home and was so happy to see him bouncing in the Lord.

      Why? There are many possible reasons. Her parents may not have known and she was frightened of punishment. She may have been in the crowd hoping her baby would be taken somewhere safe. You did the best you could by helping save the baby. I hope he does well.
