Couple finds newborn abandoned on doorstep in Southwest Baltimore


A baby girl, believed to be no more than three hours old, was found abandoned yesterday on a doorstep in the Yale Heights section of Southwest Baltimore.

George Moniodis, a spokesman at nearby St. Agnes Hospital where the baby was taken, said last night that she was in satisfactory condition though her temperature was a little low.

He said a couple living in the 500 block of Thornfield Road found the black baby on their front doorstep about 3:45 p.m. After the couple alerted the police and the baby was taken to St. Agnes, investigators began canvassing the area in search of the mother.

The child, called Aggie May Holiday by hospital staff and believed to have been born at full term, will remain at St. Agnes for a few days. She will then be turned over to the Baltimore Department of Social Services, Mr. Moniodis said.
