Baby Buried Alive Update!

Although the baby girl found buried alive in India has not been named, I choose to call her Karuṇa Daya since mercy seemed so fitting. Karuṇa Daya was born premature, weighing just over two pounds and battling sepsis, among other serious conditions. 

Doctors are amazed that she is now thriving and awaiting adoption. Rajesh Kumar Mishra a local politician, paid her medical care. Rajesh and his wife have said they will be adopting her after the legal waiting period.

I feel this is a miracle from God, others say it was a twist of fate.. I only know the chances of being found in a rural cemetery within a short time of death are pretty slim.. and the act of kindness from Rajesh Kumar Mishra, provided the NICU she needed.

The parents have not been discovered, but I am sure they are also amazed. The baby girl just discarded, now is being loved and nurtured.

Couple rescues infant buried alive!

One family’s mourning turned into a true blessing while they were intending to lay their own child to rest. When starting to dig a grave at an isolated cemetery, the couple heard crying from within the earth. They continued digging approximately three feet and discovered a newborn buried in a clay pot. The unnamed baby girl is approximately 4-days old, and weighed just over 3 pounds. The local hospital in Uttar Pradesh is caring for the infant who is now in ICU, suffering from respiratory issues.

An investigation is ongoing to locate the parents who face charges of abandoning the infant with intent to murder.

I pray this child, I will name Karuṇa Daya,( meaning mercy) will survive and be surrounded with love. This is a true miracle among the thorns of sorrow.

India is among one of the several country’s who treat girls with inequality. It is unknown if this is the reason Karuna Daya was left to die. This is yet another reason I have a heart for the orphanages of  India who care for the abandoned and cast out..
