    Funeral planned for baby found in Sterling pond

    On April 7, a newborn girl was found dead in a pond in Sterling, apparently abandoned. On Sept. 17, the still-unidentified child will receive a funeral service and burial.

    Services for the infant will be held at 10 a.m. Sept. 17 at Adams-Green Funeral Home in Herndon with interment following at Chesnut Grove Cemetery on Dranesville Road. Both organizations donated their services.

    The child’s body was discovered by pedestrians near Awsley Court. Deputies pronounced the baby dead at the scene.

    Early reports from the medical examiner indicated the baby had not eaten and was not born in a hospital. It was unknown at the time if the child was stillborn.

    According to a spokesperson for the Loudoun Sheriff's Office, the medical examiner was unable to confirm or deny the child's cause of death.

    Since April, there has been an increased attempt to publicize Virginia’s Safe Haven law, which allows for a baby up to 14 days old to be left at any hospital emergency room or emergency medical rescue squad in Virginia.

    According to Rescue Squad Chaplain Charlie Grant, the Sterling rescue squads have added new signs explaining the law in both English and Spanish.
