    I wonder how far this was from the nearest hospital/doctors office...there are beds right by the doors in hospitals here that are available to put babies in...why a box...baby could have died...

    So thankful the baby is okay......
    Burn the candles, use the nice sheets, wear the fancy jewelry and lingerie. Don't save it for a special occasion, Every Day Is Special.

    Hoping mom, or whoever put her there, knew that the daycare would soon open? Still, so many safer places she could have been left...won't most daycare centers have cameras? Maybe she knew hospitals, etc. would but did not think of it for a daycare place.
    Just my opinion, of course.

    At least it wasn't a garbage bag in a dumpster.She was making an effort at least.

    I agree and whoever it was didn't report her baby as abducted all the while knowing where it was.
    Really glad little one was found safely

    This mother wont be protected under the safe haven laws. Even though she might have thought the day care fell under that protection.

    So when they charge her for doing this ,woman and girls wont trust the safe haven laws.

    Safe haven laws should be taught to students in sex ed. That way at least they know.

    There should be a list of safe haven locations and rules organized state by state. THen we should put the link for that website on a tiny slip of paper all by itself, and it should be mandatory that all makers of home pregnancy tests insert these slips into their packages with the test...

    Some mothers would still choose to abandon, as opposed to seeking a safe haven, but if it saves one, it saves one.
    JMO. Unless there's a link, I can't prove it.

    A comment under the news article I read said there is a fire station right down the street. I have no way of knowing if it is true but I'm assuming because the poster was upset that the mother dropped her near this preschool rather than the fire station.

    I really hope they never find this mother. Cause they (DCFS) are starting to talk how their primary goal is re-unification. Give me a break already.
    Just my opinion

    It was close to pile of trash and could have been mistaken for it and thrown out. In fact the worker was dragging it to another pile of trash and heard a noise coming from the inside. If that guy didn't hear the baby making noise the baby could have been on its way to dumpster.

    Not that it makes much of a difference but this adorable infant was not found in front of the Church. Mr. Keller works for a Church who owns properties on that block. He did knock on the door of the Daycare to be told it was not one of their babies.
