“The Most Beautiful Mother,” a label given to a Chinese woman for her selfless gesture of caring for and breastfeeding an abandoned newborn girl found on the side of the road in Beiwei hamlet.
The incident occurred in the city of Xianyang, which is located in the Shaanxi province. The baby was discovered in a box, begging for food.
As a result, a 27-year-old mother (who wishes to stay unknown) held the newborn girl close and breastfed her without hesitation.
According to accounts, the box outside of her workplace was discovered by a lady named Wei, who worked at a real estate firm.
She didn’t look at the contents of the package at first, so she didn’t suspect anything. She dismissed it as a waste of time. Wei, on the other hand, heard the little voice of a wailing infant not long after. It was only then that she understood the noise came from the box.
Wei wasn’t the only one who heard the scream; other passersby on the route heard it as well. One of them hastily opened the box and was taken aback by what was inside: a baby girl wrapped in a blanket with a milk bottle and 100 yuan. (15 USD)
However, the baby was in a good condition. A person from the crowd took the baby out of the box and placed her under a shade as the box was placed under direct sunlight. From the loud bawling of the baby, it was understood that she was awfully hungry.
The unnamed 27-year-old mother recently gave birth prior to the incident and she was also one of the witnesses at the time. She stepped out of the crowd and was full of love and care, she carefully held the baby, brought her to a corner, and breastfeed her until she was full and stopped crying.
By the time the Xianyang City’s police officers arrived, the baby was already on the lap of the unnamed woman, being content and not crying. Other witnesses also donated some money and inserted it into the baby’s blanket.
It was reported by a social worker in Xianyang City that the baby suffers from muscular
disabilities and some other possible shortcomings. Thus, requires further examinations.
The story about the woman who became “The Most Beautiful Mother” caught the attention of many people. Many praised her for how she calmed the baby with her instinct as a mother.
Despite the praises, there were also people who decided to criticize the woman’s act, labeling it as causing danger to herself as they were worried about the baby’s well-being and if it might infect the woman and her own baby later in the future. Critics’ selfishness aside, the woman had the love and tenderness of a mother, which eventually saved the baby.
The unfortunate baby was brought to Xianyang Social and Welfare Center to be further
examined and placed in custody.
The police, on the other hand, conducted investigations on how the baby was abandoned by the birth mother on the roadside.
