He said prospective families will go through a rigorous vetting process to see if they can raise the children.

This is not the first time infants have been left at a hospital in the federal capital as two months ago two infants were found from a hospital in the city.

Forty-two families came forward to adopt the children. They were given to two families to raise.

    So cute babies, heart goes out to ’em. So unfortunate that their parents had to leave ’em, only if they could be re-united, I wish.

    The Infants deserve extreme care to ensure their health at this juncture; the hospital plus the State must ensure that these infants are well taken care of. Recommend
