Funeral Services Set for Infant Baby Found Dead in a Dumpster

(07-16) 15:51 PDT Union City -- SFGate Home of the San Francisco Chronicle
Her tombstone will read Matea Esperanza, even though nobody knows her name.
It was the name chosen by the Union City police dispatcher, who took the call May 18 that an infant girl with the umbilical cord still attached was found dead in a dumpster at the Parkside Apartments.

It means gift of God in Hebrew, and the surname means hope in Spanish.

No one has come forward to claim the girl, so the Union City Police Department is holding a public funeral for her at 1 p.m. Wednesday at Chapel of the Chimes in Hayward.

"This case touched so many people in our department," said Detective Steven Mendez. "We were flabbergasted. There is a fire station a few blocks away where the baby could have been safely surrendered. Our station is half a mile away. It's tragic all the way around."

California's Safely Surrendered Baby Law allows mothers to surrender their newborns three days after birth at hospitals, fire stations and police stations. Assembly Majority Leader Alberto Torrico, D-Newark, has written a bill that would stretch the deadline to 30 days.

Torrico is expected to speak at the funeral, along with Union City Police Chaplain Albert Valencia. Police Chief Greg Stewart and members of the police department and Union City Fire Department will also attend, Mendez said.

Investigators have not been able to locate anyone who can help them find the infant's parents, Mendez said.

Matea's will be buried at Chapel of the Chimes, the same location as her service: 32992 Mission Blvd. She will be buried in a donated white christening dress and bonnet, and her tombstone will read: Matea Esperanza, Adopted with love by UCPD.

Sadly, the dumpster is the final resting place for nearly 1 million children legally killed per year in our country by abortion. Please pray for an end to this holocaust.
