In Ahodwo, a neighborhood of Kpong in the Lower Krobo Municipality of the Eastern Region, a newborn baby girl has been abandoned by her mother.
The mother’s suicide letter states that the child was born on Saturday, July 15, before she made the decision to leave her behind.
On Sunday, July 16, 2023, the infant was abandoned at the door of the resident pastor of the New Covenant Apostolic church in Ahodwo.
The unidentified woman left the baby with a message outlining her motivations.
The note stated, “By the time you will finish reading this letter, I will be dead and gone, please take care of this baby as your own child. Please, I regret doing this but that is the only way this baby can have a chance to live. Please she was born just yesterday night. Please take care of her. I’m sorry please forgive me. God bless you”.
The mission home residents found the abandoned baby when they got up in the morning and promptly alerted their neighbors. The neighbors immediately notified the Kpong police, who immediately started an inquiry.
