Mom abandons newborn at church

From staff reports

The Federal Way Police Department is seeking information regarding a newborn baby boy discovered dropped off at Calvary Lutheran Church, 2415 S. 320th St.

The baby was left at the doorstep near the entrance to the church daycare in a basket sometime between 2 and 3:20 p.m. July 2.

Accompanying the child was a note indicating the baby was born on July 2. The baby is in good health and has been transported to a local hospital for evaluation by medical staff as well as Child Protective Services.
