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.”

TOUCHING: Trump Supporters Carry World War II Veteran at Arizona Rally
The men recognize the sacrifice of America’s greatest generation.
A touching moment occurred at a Trump rally in Arizona on Wednesday, when two men were seen carrying an elderly World War II veteran to designated seating at the event.
The patriot could be identified as a World War II Veteran through his hat.
Video of the event showed the love the Trump rally crowd expressed for the rare veteran. Rallygoers chanted “USA, USA,” quite possibly recognizing the fellow as a veteran of the World War from his hat.
In an era where fewer and fewer World War II veterans are living and able to recount their experiences fighting in the greatest war in history, it’s fitting that the public takes as many chances as possible to thank those who placed their lives on the line in the war that preceded a half century of American prosperity.
President Trump himself saw video of the touching scene en route to the venue for the event.

Fittingly, the rally is being held at Phoenix’s Veterans Memorial Coliseum. Pre-event footage showed a possibly record setting crowd for a Trump rally in Arizona.
Here is the line for the Trump Rally in Phoenix tonight!

President Trump is set to begin his remarks at 7PM Arizona time. He’ll boost Republican Senator Martha McSally, who faces a re-election battle in the state in 2020.
Arizona is likely also to be a competitive state in the presidential election. The once solid-red state has shifted purple in recent years as the state’s population has increased exponentially.
