Neonatal intensive care nurse Jeri Gibbons placed a dropper between his tiny lips and squeezed the clear liquid — often used to relieve cancer pain — directly into his mouth. His thin arms shot out, grasping at empty air — searching, perhaps, for the mother who was not there, who would likely never be there. “You’re doing fine,” Gibbons whispered to the infant, swaddling him tightly in a blanket, as is recommended for babies experiencing drug withdrawal.
