Help me find my mum

I've been through childbirth and being a mum. I can kind of understand how scary it is, and I've had a support network

– Leah

In 1994 newborn baby Leah was abandoned by her mother. She was found on the 29th Dec by Mabel Scott, a cleaner at Manchester's Wythenshawe Hospital, where she had been wrapped in a towel and left in the toilets.

Two decades on, Leah wants to ensure she and her own son know where they came from.

She said: 'I love my mum despite everything. I want her to know there is no angst or anger against her. We have prepared for all endings. She might not want to come forward.'

If you have any information on Leah's mum please can the After Adoption charity on 0800 0568578.
