The story made local and national headlines. An abandoned baby boy was rescued from a trash bin and was comforted by the familiar song “Jesus Loves Me.” The rescuer Cynthia Burton joins us for our Ministry Focus to recount the story. Cindi Adair from Life Line Pregnancy Center also joins us to show how Life Line Pregnancy Center helps women in difficult circumstances. Plus, they share more about North Carolina’s Safe Surrender Law.
Cynthia discovered the baby while on a walk with her dog on July 16th. She had taken an unusual route, but knows that God was placing here at the right place for the right time. Now, the boy is healthy and getting the care he needs.
