A sad story emerged last week (18 May 2009) about a little girl who was found abandoned early last Monday morning in Merasheed, Fujairah.
After the public heard the news the Fujairah police was flooded with calls from families wanting to adopt the one year old toddler.
By Thursday of last week the police had placed the girl with a foster family.
While The National reported that the girl was Arab but not Emirati, few details have emerged about the parents of the child and the motives that led to her being abandoned.
