Hundreds of families have reached out seeking to adopt a baby girl who was found abandoned in a plastic bag in the woods in Georgia earlier this month.
“It’s amazing the number of people who are looking to take on a new life into their families and we got somebody who tried to throw one away,” Forsyth County Sheriff Ron Freeman said Friday on the “Today” show.
A man named Alan Ragatz and his three daughters were hiking in the woods when they heard the little girl crying. They grabbed their flashlights and went searching, only to find the newborn – for now called Baby India – inside a plastic grocery back covered by leaves, sticks, and sitting on top of a bath mat.
The family said they believe God put them in the right place at the right time to find the little girl.
“We went down, pulled it up. There was a poor little baby wrapped in a plastic bag, and we called 911,” Ragatz said. “She was alive. She was crying, so we figured that was a good sign. Could have been worse. The credit goes to my girls. They were the ones sticking with it.”
Authorities are trying to track the child’s birth mother.
Meanwhile, Baby India’s health continues to improve.
Division of Family and Children Services director Tom Rawlings spoke with Fox8 and gave the news outlet an update.
“She’s gaining weight and smiling a lot. She’s an easy baby who loves to be held and sung to, and she’s overall thriving now,” he said.
He also said that this is not the first time the agency has come across an abandoned child.
“Too often, babies are abandoned in terrible conditions like this. We’ve had babies left in bathrooms and other horrible situations,” he said. “None of this is necessary. There are good options, wonderful options.”

Upcoming Book Shows the Heroism of Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò, Who Exposed Defrocked Sex Abuse Cardinal
Viganò would make a great candidate for saint.
An upcoming book, Finding Viganò: In Search of the Man Whose Testimony Shook the Church and the World, profiles the courage and strength of Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò, a whistleblower who exposed how a pedophile priest was being harbored by marxist apostate Pope Francis.
LifeSiteNews explains that book author Dr. Robert Moynihan was able to spend a few days with Viganò in July 2019, a rarity considering his reclusion since 2018. Viganò continues to stay in touch with a close circle of family members and friends while worshipping the Lord out of the public eye.
Viganò showed himself in public in January 2020 to pray and protest against the German Episcopal Conference and its President Cardinal Marx, who are pushing for Christian acceptance of homosexuality and other forms of sexual deviancy. However, Viganò has largely been in hiding since he published his iconic report regarding the rehabilitation of pedophile Cardinal Theodore McCarrick by Pope Francis after the Vatican fully understood that he preyed upon innocent children.
Big League Politics reported on McCarrick’s defrocking by the Catholic Church last year in the aftermath of Viganò’s shocking allegations:
A former Roman Catholic Cardinal who was forced to resign from his office for sexual abuse last summer was dismissed from the clerical state in a Vatican trial on Friday.
Theodore McCarrick, 88, is the most senior member of the Catholic clergy to be defrocked in modern times. McCarrick was officially removed from the clergy on charges of soliciting sex while hearing confessions.
McCarrick had been first busted in July when a former altar boy went public with a story that involved McCarrick unzipping his pants and groping him in New York 1972. Another adult man then came public with his account of being abused by McCarrick as a boy, beginning when he was 11.
The sexual abuse accusations against the Cardinal led to several former Catholic seminarians stepping forward with accounts of McCarrick’s gay relationships with them. McCarrick had gained a reputation for abusive solicitation of men studying at seminaries to become Catholic priests.
The church judicial proceedings in regards to the abuse attributed to McCarrick revealed what many saw as a lack of will to confront allegations against the Archbishop of Washington among senior Vatican officials.
An Italian bishop, Carlo Maria Vigano, has accused Pope Francis of having prior knowledge of the accusations against McCarrick before they surfaced publicly. Vigano even took the almost entirely unprecedented step of calling for the Pope’s resignation over his handling of the now-disgraced former Cardinal.
Church authorities in the United States may have been secretly aware of the accusations against McCarrick, sweeping the reports under the rug.
Moynihan describes Viganò as “arguably one of the loneliest men in the world” while being forced into hiding to protect his own safety. Viganò is paying the price for having integrity and character in a world that is increasingly dominated by the Beast.
Despite the hurdles, Viganò does not regret exposing the Vatican’s protection of McCarrick and demanding the resignation of McCarrick’s enabler Pope Francis.
“Having clearly covered for McCarrick, it was only right that he first did what he asked the Chilean bishops to do,” Viganò told Moynihan about why it was right to demand Pope Francis’ resignation,
“It was something I had to do.” he explained. “I think that I have been a witness to the truth.”
He added that “my conscience is telling me to protect the Church. I see that the devil has been entering into the Church, on the top of it, and so that I have to stand up.”
If righteous Catholics can ultimately rise up and defeat the “deep church,” as Viganò refers to it, he will likely be remembered as one of the greatest followers of Christ ever to live and be a prime candidate for sainthood. Finding Viganò will be available for sale in November.
