I can't find any corroborating historical source that says we know anything about the baby in the Bloody Saturday photograph. Everything I see says no one knows whether the baby even lived, let alone any biographical information about it, its name, or anything about a later adoption. It's possible she adopted a child victim of the attack, but I'm not sure it was this particular baby.
