THOSE TWO New Jersey college freshmen who threw their newborn baby in a Dumpster a few weeks ago, perhaps after crushing its skull, made me think of another teen-ager and another discarded baby. For all their shared awfulness, the two cases evoke such different emotions, one must ponder why.Michelle Savage never made the pages of Time and Newsweek. doubt that many here in the Baltimore area ever heard of her. Like many young parents guilty of crimes against the just-born, she was poor, a resident of subsidized housing near Fort Meade.

Jenny Mohler lay on an examining bed holding her pregnant belly at Sinai Hospital in Northwest Baltimore. Sonogram pictures hung from a machine in the right corner of the room. She was nervous, unable to block a feeling of uneasiness as she waited for a specialist to come in and decipher the images. Just two days earlier, the Catonsville resident had received a call while sitting at her desk at a Catholic Charities health clinic in Baltimore, where she worked as a school counselor.

Editor's Note: Jerdine Nolen continues her series on language development skills. Her column appears biweekly. For many newborns, experiences shared with caregivers help to develop language. Crying and wailing are an infant's only means of vocal communication. As hard as they are to listen to, these cries have meaning. After determining that the baby isn't hungry or in pain, listen to your infant as she attempts to communicate with you. Show understanding by your proximity, touch or with eye contact.

The makers of the videos sell hundreds of millions of dollars worth each year to parents aiming to put their babies on the fast track, even if they are still working on walking.

Are there relatives you want to honor for roles they've played in your life or because they possess personal qualities you hope your child will emulate? What's important to you?: Identify values and characteristics important in your family, then find names associated with these. For example, if sports are important to you, the Irish name Colin, which means strong and virile, might have lasting meaning.
