Summer of 2007
The carnival was in full swing. And it seemed like all of Port Charles was there. It was being sponsored by General Hospital to raise money for AIDS research.
"Mom it's my turn on the Ferris wheel." Morgan said
"Can you take him, Jase?" Carly asked
"All right. Come on, big guy."
Michael was a few feet away buying cotton candy. When he returned to Carly's side they wandered behind the vendors carts to an area where picnic tables were set up.
A baby's cry pierced the air.
There was no one at any of the tables.
Hmmm, I know I heard a baby.She thought
She heard the cry again. It was dark, except for the neon lights on the rides. She moved around the tables and then spotted a large brown picnic basket. She looked inside and saw a baby, a newborn if her guess was right.
"It's okay, sweetie, I'll get you out of here." Carly said as her eyes swept over the small body wrapped in a towel.
Carly's spirit was rocked at the realization that this child was discarded. Everything in her shook at the thought of how wrong it was that this could happen to a child.
Michael said, in a shocked voice, "No way, there can't be a baby in there!"
Carly carried the basket back to the Ferris Wheel where she saw Jason and Morgan getting off the ride.
"Oh my god, look at this, Jase. Someone abandoned this little baby girl. Who would do something like that?"
Hours later, at General Hospital, Bobbie came into the waiting room. She told Mac, Carly and Jason."The baby is doing well. It looks like she less than 24 hours old. She must not have been outside long because she isn't suffering from exposure. And the warm weather helped that, too."
Jason asked, "So what happens to her now?"
Bobbie said, "Child Services had been notified but they can't send anybody for a few days. She'll have to stay here I suppose."
"That's so sad." Carly said "She needs a family tonight. No child should spend even one night without having any parents to call their own."
At the same time, Emily was staring at the baby. She had been assigned to take her vital signs every hour to monitor her but Emily was too transfixed by the child's adorable little face, tiny hands, soft wisps of hair to complete her task. She couldn't even breath because this baby was so beautiful. And her story so sad. Who could throw away their baby?
Robin came into the room. "Is she stabilized?"
"She's perfect." whispered Emily in a voice filled with awe
Robin peered down at the infant. Her skin was pale white, her hair a very light shade of brown. Her medical chart said she was full term and healthy.
And all alone.
Emily snapped out of her trance and said, "I should get back to work."
Robin barely heard her leave. She whispered to the baby, "You'll find a family soon. Don't worry, little one. There will be people fighting to get the chance to love you."
