Newborn Baby Abandoned at Pastor’s Doorstep
Can you imagine waking up one morning to find a newborn baby on your doorstep? That’s exactly what happened to a New Covenant Apostolic Church pastor and his family in Ahodwo, Kpong, Eastern Region. As they went about their regular daily routine, they were met with an unexpected surprise that would change their lives forever.
Wrapped in cloth and carefully placed on their staircase, the baby lay peacefully, unaware of the commotion it had caused. But it wasn’t just the sight of the newborn that left the pastor and his family in shock; it was the note accompanying the baby that tugged at their hearts.
The heartfelt letter, believed to be written by the baby’s mother, revealed the desperate circumstances that led her to abandon her child. She explained that she had given birth to the baby less than 24 hours ago and, despite her deep regret, she had no choice but to leave the child behind. The mother acknowledged that she might not be alive by the time the pastor and his family found the baby and read her plea for help.
In tear-stained words, the mother implored the pastor to take good care of her baby, treating the child as their own. She knew that this was the only way her precious baby could have a chance at a better life. It was a heart-wrenching decision for the mother, but she believed it was the best choice for her child’s future.
The letter reads: “By the time you will finish reading this letter. I will be dead and gone, please take care of this baby as your own child. Please, I regret doing this but that is the only way this baby can have a chance to live, please. She was born just yesterday night. Please take care of her. I’m sorry please forgive me. God bless you”
The pastor and his family were deeply moved by the mother’s words. They couldn’t fathom the pain and desperation that led her to make such a difficult decision. Yet, they understood the weight of responsibility now placed upon them. With open hearts, they embraced the baby as their own, promising to provide the love, care, and nurturing that every child deserves.
This heartwarming tale serves as a reminder of the power of compassion and the lengths a mother would go to ensure her child’s well-being. It also highlights the role that individuals and communities can play in uplifting those in need. The pastor and his family’s willingness to embrace this unexpected journey is a testament to the strength of humanity and the capacity for love.
