The mother of a newborn left on a doorstep of a home in Griffith, NSW, over the weekend has been found safe and well.
Just before midnight on Sunday night, the homeowners answered their doorbell, discovering the three-day-old baby boy in a bassinet with a note attached.
The homeowners have confirmed to Seven News that the note was from the baby’s mother:
“Please look after him, he is beautiful, and I cannot look after him because I am only 14 years old … my parents will kill me,” the note reportedly read.
With concerns for the mother’s welfare a public appeal was launched on Monday. The mother attended Griffith Base Hospital yesterday afternoon and staff notified police.
The mother and child are being cared for by hospital workers and Family and Community Services.
The baby boy, is healthy and well.
Police have thanked the public for their assistance.
