Hundredth babybox child brings mixed feelings
A baby girl was placed in the Pardubice babybox early on Tuesday morning, making her the 100 child to be left in a babybox, since the network was established in the Czech Republic in 2005. Doctors said that the baby, who was given the name Ria, was placed in the box about two hours after birth and that the child’s condition was stable. There are a total of 59 babyboxes in different locations around the Czech Republic, and in the past eight years, 60 girls and 40 boys were left in them. The founder of the Czech babybox system, Ludvík Hess, told the press that he has mixed feelings about the 100th babybox child. Although he is happy that so many children were saved, he originally did not expect that there would be such a high number.
