As reported by The Sun, the baby’s mother was identified and arrested but her name wasn’t revealed. Authorities believe she gave birth at Dr. Ramon Madariaga Treble Hospital and abandoned her daughter at a nearby street, according to The Daily Mail.

David Halac, a representative of the hospital where the baby was treated, said that the knife which was stuck in the baby’s back was the same one that was used to inflict the other injuries.

As this baby girl’s survival was a real miracle, the staff at the hospital decided to name her Esperanza, which stands for Hope in Spanish.

We are so very sorry Esperanza had to go through such an ordeal just two days after she entered this world, but we are at the same time overjoyed she got to live. We hope she will end up with a loving family.
