Babies are absolutely adorable and easy to love, but they can also be a handful for a parent who wasn’t expecting or is unable to provide. This is why in America there are a variety of options a mother can take after the baby has been born so the baby gets the best life possible.
She can surrender the baby up for adoption, but there’s also another option if the parents or mother wish to remain anonymous.Often referred to as the “Baby Moses” law, the Safe-Haven law allows parents to anonymously surrender their healthy baby at the door step of fire stations, hospitals, police stations and the like.
The key for this law is that the state needs to designate these places as “safe havens” by the state.You can’t just leave a baby on just anyone’s door step.
When a 35-year-old man returned home, he found that not everyone knows this key fact.
As he was relaxing after a long day of work, he heard the sound of faint crying.Unsure of where it was coming from, he decided to investigate. His investigation took him to the back porch of his apartment where, on a wicker love seat he found it. Wrapped neatly in a brown blanket there was a baby that was perhaps only a few hours old.
It appeared that someone had an accidental pregnancy and in a feat of fear decided to leave the baby on this man’s back porch.
