Temperatures were in the single digits when an Indiana woman went outside and found a newborn on her front step.

Merrillville, Ind., patrol Officer Gerald Croarkin and his wife, Angela, were pretty much tucked in for the night Friday, shortly before 8 p.m., when Angela went outside to smoke one last cigarette.

It was then that Angela, bracing herself for one of the coldest nights of the year, found on their front steps what she and her husband soon discovered was a newborn baby girl wrapped inside a sweater and placed inside a covered cardboard box.
