& # 39; When we could pick her up, wrap her up, get her a little warm, I could talk to her a bit, & # 39; told Forsyth Sheriff & deputy Terry Roper, who was first on the scene, Good morning America on Wednesday.
& # 39; I wanted to comfort her. Moments later, I realized it was the first time she had felt love, and I felt honored that I could give it to her. & # 39;

Since 6 June, authorities have been looking for the girl's mother. They ask Twitter if anyone in the area knows & # 39; a female who was in a late stage of pregnancy & # 39 ;.
Civil servants ask for tips about a woman who has just given birth, but who does not have a child in her care.
Rawlings said that India is now smiling and smiling and being well cared for. For confidentiality reasons, he could not say where she is.

& # 39; Of course, we are dealing with many tragedies in child protection services, but it's great to have a miracle &, said Rawlings about baby India's survival. & # 39; And this is really a miracle. & # 39;
& # 39; I have been working with child protection services for almost 20 years, this is one of the most exciting and wonderful miracles I have seen in my life & # 39 ;, he added.
The sheriff office reminded the public that the state of Georgia has a law called Safe Haven (HB 391).
This law allows the mother of a child to leave her baby, up to 30 days old, with an employee of a medical facility including a hospital, institutional sick bay, health center or birth center in Georgia without prosecution. This includes hospitals, fire stations and police stations.
