On a cold morning in May 2017, a college student from Tallahassee, Florida was walking through the parking lot of an apartment complex and heard the sound of muffled cries coming from the back of a pickup truck. The student called 911 and paramedics arrived to find a tiny baby boy who’d been abandoned in the bed of the truck.
The nameless baby, who was only one-week-old at the time, was all alone and without a hat or blanket to keep him warm.
Paramedics rushed the baby to Tallahassee Memorial HealthCare where he was placed in the care of Lorraine Nichols, a seasoned respiratory therapist. Lorraine began treating the baby boy, who was hypothermic and had a dangerously low body temperature. He was starving and his skin was peeling.
No one knew much about the baby, and since he didn’t have a name the hospital gave him a computer-generated one: “Whiskey Doe.”
Lorraine continued helping Whiskey Doe recover. She’s a two-time breast cancer survivor who spent tens of thousands of dollars on IVF in the effort to have a baby. Since she couldn’t conceive, she and her husband had been trying desperately to adopt a child.
One week after the baby was found alone in the truck bed, Lorraine made a life-changing realization and called her husband.
The next part of the story? Truly unbelievable.
