It was also stated that the kids - ranging from 6 months to 9 years of age - had to be separated from their parents as the couple were jobless, had addictions problems and were leaving in poor conditions.
It was while Ayala escorted the kids to receive care that one of them who is 6 months old burst into crying.
Moved by the teary baby, the officer had requested permission from the caretaker to breastfeed the child.
The young lady then hugged and breastfed the child upon being granted permission.
Ayala explains why she breastfed the baby
Speaking with Cornica, the lady said seeing the kid wail broke her soul and made her shed tears as she is a mother herself.
“When the children arrived at the hospital, and we saw their situation, we could not stop crying. The kids would cry and we would cry… later the children calmed down, and we played with them.
“I noticed that he was hungry, as he was putting his hand into his mouth, so I asked to hug him and breastfeed him.
“It was a sad moment, it broke my soul seeing him like this, society should be sensitive to the issues affecting children, it cannot keep happening.”
It is noteworthy that the lady's kind gesture which took place in 2018 was recorded by her partner on the overtime guard duty.
