The baby boy “Aidin” who was cruelly stabbed at least 14 times and found buried alive in a field in Khon Kaen province back in February will start his bright future in the family of a Swedish couple.
The baby, now seven months old, will soon be adopted by a Swedish couple after being in the care of Kaen Thong Orphanage since he was abandoned by his mother earlier this year, according to Supachai Pathimchart, a staff member at the orphanage.
Supachai said the Department of Children and Youth usually runs a background check on couples who wishe to adopt a baby. Some of the criteria taken into consideration include their mental health, criminal records, and their capability to care for the baby, Khaosod reported.
On Feb. 23, a cattle raiser rescued the baby after she saw his foot emerging from the soil under a eucalyptus tree in Wang Yai district. The child was immediately sent to Khon Kaen Provincial Hospital and was named “Aidin” or “earth smell” by the hospital staff.
The doctor said it was the earth that helped stop the bleeding from the baby’s stab wounds.
Aidin’s mother, who was only identified as a 42-year-old woman, was later tracked down and charged for attempted murder and abandoning her own child.
