Daghan gusto magka-anak pero kamo gisayangan ra ninyo ang chance na gihatag sa Ginoo. Salamat Barangay Calinan Responders ug sa atong kapulisan (How cruel! To the parents of this child, I hope you feel guilty. You just left your baby like garbage. How ruthless of you! May the Lord bestow His judgment on you. Many people want to have children, but you just wasted the chance that the Lord gave you. Thank you Barangay Calinan Responders and to the police authorities),” Llanes captioned.

Currently, the newborn, believed to have been born on the same date as he was found, is receiving medical treatment at Dr. Lorenzo Principe Clinic, Ramon Magsaysay Street, Barangay Calinan.
