In a rural area of Tulua, Colombia, a group of police officers discovered an abandoned baby. She was exposed to the elements, hungry and in distress. Thankfully, one of the responding officers was also a nursing mother, and immediately began nursing the newborn, providing her not only with life-saving sustenance, but also warmth and security when she needed it most.
The video has been posted to at least two different Facebook pages, garnering over 1.5 million views, garnering almost 20,000 shares and 30,000 “likes.” Some of the comments on the video are almost as inspiring as the act itself:
Jessica WhiteheadSimply beautiful. SHE is a real mother, one that wouldn’t abandon a helpless infant or let them starve. Beautiful inside and out.
Korbyn ErvinThank the Lord for the miracle he has created in allowing women to breast feed. That’s one of the most selfless acts of a human being when they breast feed someone else’s child, at a time like this nothing but care and love .
Keighty PalmerYou know what’s gross? Abandoning a helpless infant. You know what’s not gross? Providing nourishment & comfort to a terrified little baby.
