CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas - The sign in front of a Texas church declares it helps pregnant women and one took it to heart - she left her newborn baby there on Wednesday morning.
The baby girl is now being cared for at a hospital in the city of Alice, Texas. A doctor there named her Angel.
A woman attending mass found the baby outside the church inside a shoe box with a hole cut in it, presumably so she could breathe.
Her umbilical cord was still attached and doctors say she was probably born on Tuesday.
Investigators say they think Angel's mother left her there in the early morning hours.
"If the mother wants to come forward she is not in trouble. We want to help her and our people in the community will be more than glad to help her in any way, in any form and to help the family members if that is the case," said Chief Danny Bueno.
Since Angel was left at a church, it falls under the state's Safe Haven law. The baby will eventually be placed in foster care and put up for adoption.
