GREENSBORO, N.C. — Social workers have reportedly found a potential foster family for an infant who was found abandoned outside a Greensboro home in July.

The baby boy was estimated to be between 10 and 12 hours old when a resident found him shortly before 8 p.m. on July 2 at a home on O’Ferrell Street.

“This child was fireball red, flies all over it, blood was on the blanket, and there was a rock by the blanket so I assumed the worst,” said Timothy George, who discovered the child after letting his dogs out in his backyard.  George said the infant had a diaper and clothes, but his umbilical cord was still attached.

After being checked out by doctors, the infant was taken into custody by the Greensboro Department of Social Services.

According to the Greensboro News-Record, a social worker recently told George and his wife that an “awesome foster family” was found for the child.

“I was so glad to hear that he got a nice foster family, and it looks like they’re going to adopt him,” Stephanie George told the paper. “That’s what the caseworker told me.”

A woman who was reportedly scene leaving the scene was described as black or Hispanic with reddish-brown hair, but she was never found or identified.
