After 44 Years, Abandoned ”Manger Baby” Finds His Family


It was a dramatic scene set in 1971. A newborn baby boy was found lying a nativity scene inside a Catholic church in Houston, Texas. The five-day-old boy was swaddled in clothes, a handful of diapers placed beside him in the manger. His mother was missing, and there were no clues as to who abandoned him. Two of the church’s parishioners discovered the baby, then transferred him into the care of a 23-year-old rookie with the Children’s Protective Services of Houston.

The baby boy was given the name DJ Williams, and his story made headline news. Despite all the press and attention, no one stepped forward with any leads. Eventually, DJ was adopted into loving family — but he never stopped wondering about his birth mom.

Decades passed, until one day DJ was at home watching television when he saw a news segment that changed the course of his life. The segment was about another abandoned baby whose case was handled by investigative genealogist Pam Slaton. DJ’s gut told him to contact Pam and hire her to help him solve his own mystery.

44 years after he was abandoned in the manger, two DNA matches emerged and matched a man and woman. Pam immediately contacted them and asked, “Can you tell me what church your family attended?”

What happened next is making headlines again, but for a much different reason…
