By The Siberian Times reporter
17 August 2016

Well-dressed abandoned baby found by pensioner is now being cared for by orphanage, but police and carers offer help to mother.

A baby girl was dressed in an overall, a pink hat and socks, and lovingly wrapped in a blanket. Picture here and below: GUMVD Krasnoyarsk

The mother said in her desperate message 'I will definitely take her back' but added that for now she could not cope. 

She and the child had spent one night on a stairwell, she said. 

A baby girl was dressed in an overall, a pink hat and socks, and lovingly wrapped in a blanket.

The child was found by an 83 year old woman in long grass in an apartment block yard in  a suburb of Krasnoyarsk. 

She found a plaintive note carefully placed inside the blanket, which read: 'Forgive me. But I've got nowhere to go with her. 

'She is very calm and healthy girl. She was born on 12 August. She has been vaccinated.

Mother's note

'Forgive me. But I've got nowhere to go with her. She is very calm and healthy girl. She was born on 12 August. She has been vaccinated.' 

'This is the scariest moment of my life. I will be back for her, I will definitely take her back.

'But as of now I can do nothing. We have already spent a night on a staircase.'

The pensioner took the child to a local baby orphanage. Police are searching for the mother. 

They assume she was close to the place where she left the baby so that she could make sure the girl was all right, and found by someone. 

Both police officers and people from the orphanage asked the woman to return.

They are telling her via the media: 'There is always a way to help.We'll definitely do all we can to help you. 

'Come back, your daughter is waiting for you.'

The pensioner took the child to a local baby orphanage. Police are searching for the mother.

Yes, I hope too that everything turns out well for both. The mother must understand that her daughter needs her and I hope that she will receive the help she needs to bring up her daughter. I hope also that the Siberian Times will give us further information.
