As usual Mother Aplonia goes to church. She is old and weak. She finds the slippery rock steps to church hard to climb. There are chances of her weak legs to fail her and she is careful not to fall on the steps. As she climbed up the stairs she heard a cry. It’s a baby’s cry but from where? She looked around. It’s coming from the church. Mother Aplonia ran towards the church without caring the slippery steps or her weak legs. She saw anew born baby on eth steps of the church. Somebody has left the baby there. Mother took the baby in her hands and took her to the orphanage thinking who would have had a hard heart to leave a baby there.
