My mate David was found abandoned in a stairwell 48 years ago. He was just hours old, and was nicknamed the “Rainbow Baby” in the press because he was dressed in a white candlewick shawl, lined with green, with a yellow bear embroidered on it, and a pink cardigan with a blue Fair Isle pattern. Over him had been laid a blue flannelette blanket decorated with a pink and black lamb.
Despite police enquiries and extensive media coverage, his birth parents were never traced.
Now they’ll be getting old, and David’s hoping to trace his birth mother before it’s too late. Read his full story.
