We're glad to hear that the newborn boy found at Wilson and Beacon earlier this week is improving physically and DCFS is receiving a lot of adoption interest on his behalf.
We're particularly proud of our Uptown neighbor Brandon Shephard for noting the baby's cries, investigating the situation and rushing the baby to the paramedics at the firehouse. Doctors say that if Baby Wilson had remained outside another couple hours, hypothermia would have gotten the better of him.
Well done, Brandon! And best wishes to Baby Wilson, with hopes he has a happy life with a good family.
UPDATE: The police have released a photo of Baby Wilson in hopes someone can identify him.
