A baby boy named “Nathaniel” who was abandoned at a church in Paranaque City has received breast milk and various forms of help. He was found last Saturday with his umbilical cord still attached. The Good Samaritan, Arabelle L. Hipolito, who brought him home last September 19, posted a photo of Nathaniel, urging breastfeeding mothers to donate so he could get proper nourishment. Nathaniel has also since received baby clothes, baby blankets and diapers. A doctor also volunteered to have him undergo newborn screening tests and vaccines. (abs-cbnnews.com)
