This is just terrible. At least the "mother" didn't kill the baby.
I hope whoever she is, she knew someone would find the newborn.Rest in Peace to my best buddy and baby, Buster ~ He crossed the Rainbow Bridge on Jan. 3, 2011. I miss you, Buster and love you with all my being.

Too bad the mother couldn't have thought to take the infant to a hospital. In California there is a law that you won't be prosecuted if you leave the newborn at a hospital or fire station.This is the year to locate Mark Dribin http://www.websleuths.com/forums/sho...ht=Mark+Dribin NamUs MP#876 and Ilene Misheloff http://www.websleuths.com/forums/sho...lene+Misheloff NamUs MP#6410 and bring them home to their families!
Parents watch your children. Free-range parenting leads to more child victims.
Cruelty to humans begins with cruelty to animals.
I believe in closure, not forgiveness. I'm also unapologetically judgemental.

It's worth noting that this weekend it was extremely cold in the Detroit area. I'm talking 12 degrees at the warmest at times. This baby is extremely lucky that someone found him........

Sounds like a young girl that was scared / maybe nobody knew she was pregnant. But to leave it in the cold???

OMG how could someone just LEAVE a baby in a shoebox out in the cold!!!
That baffles me. I mean at least the baby wasn't murdered. But I just don't know how you could have any heart to leave something so tiny and helpless by itself. I hope what this person did haunts them till the day they die. That is just so cruel.

No, i didn't think you were sympathizing with her... just pointing out the fact that she would be dead, if someone would not have found the baby...A fair face may fade, but a beautiful soul will last forever...

It would be nice to see that age limit changed
People should be allowed so surrender a child at any age if it's in the best interest of the child. what happens to the four and five year olds like Jane "Cordova" Doe who are above the age of all the states who have that law on the books?
I don't know how the financial support of the surrendered child would be handled but at least there would be another option for desperate and mentally ill parents besides murder.
