Gesture of love”: Photo of police officer breastfeeding malnourished baby goes viral
With all of the controversy about breast-feeding in public; I do not think there is anyone that finds this objectionable. It is a picture of beauty and compassion.
A police officer in Argentina performed a “gesture of love” after she heard a crying baby that needed to be fed. Officer Celeste Ayala breastfed the malnourished infant, a moment that was captured in a photo and went viral on social media.
Ayala was working her shift Tuesday at Sor María Ludovica in Buenos Aires when the 6-month-old baby was brought in along with five of her siblings by social workers to the hospital, according to Argentine news outlet Clarin. The children were all malnourished and the little girl’s cries prompted Ayala, a mother of a newborn herself, to do something.
Ayala didn’t care who this little starving child was, where she came from or how she got to the hospital. All the dutiful police officer knew, it was an infant that needed help.
I hope Officer Ayala gets the cops award of the year for her act of kindness.
My cappello is off to her.
