Paula Lapenna fights back tears and she and her daughter Vivian, 13 months old, pay their respects to “Rosie” after donating a bouquet of white flowers at her funeral service at Auburn Public Cemetery on Wednesday September 18, 2013, in Auburn, Calif. “Rosie,” an unidentified newborn girl, was found in July by Roseville city workers in Saugstad Park. “I wanted the baby to know she is loved and hope she will have another chance and that she made a difference. I wish I could have been there to do something and I want people to know there are a lot of options. She could have been dropped off at a fire department,"”said Lapenna.
