Newly born baby girl who was found outside a Cypress apartment complex in a plastic Walmart bag last Tuesday is now healthy enough to go to a foster home.
Named Chloe by Texas Children Hospital, where she spent her entire last week, the 8-days-old girl is a healthy baby, said her case worker, Kliche Adebanjo.
"She is a normal, healthy baby. The only time she fusses is when she's hungry or needs a diaper change. She's usually quiet and content."
Child Protective Services is now searching for her parents. Officials say that they don’t necessarily have to claim her, they just require some information.
“Our role is that this baby can be placed with relatives,” saidCPS spokeswoman Estella Olguin. “And so the person who is adopting this baby can have some more genetic family medical background on the baby to be able to raise her with more knowledge or information about her.”
As CPS continues looking for her biological family, Chloe will be cared for in a foster homeuntil her court date on March 4 when a decision about her fate would be made.
