Hundreds of Families Want to Adopt Baby Girl Dumped in Plastic Grocery Bag

The child’s health is improving by the day.

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.”
