You had me right at the start with this one! A story every mother fears. The descriptions and imagery were fantastic. I wondered about the age of the baby and why in all that time, it never cried? So glad this story had a happy ending.
Attention riveting reading. If I understand the time span correctly, it seems unrealistic: after the 60 minute "Golden" period, the janitors start their shift and when that shift (8 hours?) is ending, the baby is found. This story speaks to every parent and grandparent's heart.
Wonderful description of a harrowing experience. I felt like I was right there along with the others, searching for the missing infant.

I am glad she was found. A good reminder that it only takes a minute.
Congratulations on placing 27th overall!
