OF OLD SANTA FE LUNCH ON SUNDAYS 125 East Palace Santa Ft Ratnatioxs 9889232 The Associated Press KALMUNAI SriLanka enita Jeyarajah believes Baby 81 is her son the 3monthold infant ripped from her arms by the tsunami Eight other mothers As days and weeks pass by the trauma of not finding their children will drive many such parents to the extreme like the one we are seeing in Kalmu said Maleec Calyanara tne spokeswoman for Save the Children in Sri Lanka But every effort should be made to ensure that the baby goes to the rightful When the waves tore through Jeyarajahs beach front home she grabbed her son Abilass and her younger sister and climbed atop a concrete slab The force of the raging waters broke apart their perch and tore Abilass from her grasp as all three fell into the raging waters While Jeyarajah and her family insist Baby 81 is hers the tsunami also stole the paperwork to prove it Hours after the Dec 26 tsunami killed thousands sundered families and flat tened towns and villages an old man found the baby on a beach covered in mud but unhurt He took the wide eyed child to the hospital in the eastern coastal town of Kalmunai just hours after the Dec 26 tsunami the 81st

died in Sri Lanka 40 percent about were children It is an extremely sad and pathetic Caly anaratne said Such incidents in fact confirm our fear that more children have died in the disaster than previously The courts will decide the fate of Baby 81 who doctors say is between three and four months old DNA tests are planned to determine whom if any among the nine claim ants is the real parent But the tests are extremely expensive about matching the aver age monthly salary of a low level government bureaucrat and far more than a village fisherman might earn Maybe the couples are not lying but the only way to make sure 100 percent is to have a DNA said K Muhunthan consulting obstetrician at Kalmunai Base Hospital We cannot give away orphans first come first served We must be For the 25yearold Jeyara jah the battle to claim her baby is another nightmare to deal with since the tsunami destroyed her home and swept away birth records and family photographs that might have proven her claim They have lost every thing said her mother S Parameshwarie recounting her daughters story from a relief camp This is their baby No doubt He has the same smile as his mother MEXICO FOLK ART TOUR
