Mother and adoptive daughter found on doorstep celebrate 18 years

ALCORN COUNTY, Mississippi — Friday marks 18 years since Janessa Gibbs was abandoned as a newborn at the front of a Corinth, Mississippi, doctor’s office. A nearby hospital worker made the difficult choice to take her in, and it’s a decision that’s changed two lives forever.

Sara Gibbs isn’t Janessa Gibbs’ birth mother.

“I had never, never let a birthday of hers pass, that I didn’t think of her mother,” Sara said.

Janessa was called in to work at the hospital next door where she was a nurse. So she was there when first responders found the girl who would soon be her daughter.

“I was single. I worked night shift. I worked 12-hour-nights. There was nothing in my life that had prepared me for a baby,” Sara said.

With help from her pastor and friends at the hospital, Sara received the courage to officially adopt Janessa.
