    Girl, 14, gives birth alone, hands baby to a neighbor

    http://www.miami.com/mld/miamiherald/news/10966418.htm

    The girl told Leon she had given birth alone, cleaned and breast-fed the baby and made the wrenching decision to hand the child to someone whose name she did not even know.

    ''She asked me if I had a car so I could take the baby to a fire station,'' said Leon, who is 20.

    The teen, who told investigators she was 14, said her mother did not know she had been pregnant. She knew of the law that allows mothers to bring a newborn to a fire station and wanted her baby to get to one.
    Just when I think that I have seen the most depraved things a human can do to another human, somebody posts a new story...........

    Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?

    I'm so glad that this girl knew of the law that allows the baby to be dropped off at a safe haven. I'm also glad that the baby is going to go home and stay with the mother and grandmother. And that the grandmother is being supportive and understanding of her daughter.
