New Graduate of SF State Abandoned There as Infant

May 31, 2016

An article in The San Francisco Chronicle tells the unusual story of one of this year's graduates at San Francisco State University. The woman, Jillian Sobol, was born at the university, when a student gave birth and left her newborn in a box in a laundry room. Two students found the baby. To Sobol's great fortune, one was a nursing student who had just learned about neonatal care. While calling for help, the nursing student took steps to prevent Sobol from getting hypothermia. The article details Sobol's adoption, various other struggles and her success at the university where she was born.
