Child finds abandoned baby while playing peekaboo with grandma
A 6-year-old girl playing hide-and-seek with her grandmother found a newborn baby girl abandoned in a vacant lot next to her home.
Lilliana Williams-Rodriguez told her grandmother Thursday evening that she had found a doll in the bushes.
My goodness. Clearly they wanted this child to die by throwing it in the bushes. Who are these people that do these kinds of things?Only my opinion, no one else need agree.

It isn't so much that they want the baby to die as they are frantically trying to keep the secret.
Doesn't make much difference so far as the infant in concerned but I think it's important to remember that a girl or woman who does this is not making decisions with her usual mental facilities intact.

What a blessing this little girl and her grandmother found this child. I read the child thought the baby was a doll. I hope she has no long term effects from finding an abandoned baby, no 6 year old needs to see or know things like that happen in our world at such a young age.
Grainne Dhu, I agree with your point, what is sad is these mothers don't know or don't care(?) that Safe Haven laws exist. What do we as a society need to do to get more of these women to bring their baby to a safe place and understand no questions will be asked?~JMO~

Posters about "safe haven" laws need to be put up in JH/Middle/SH schools.

Unfortunately I don't think it's a matter of these young women not knowing about safe haven laws. I think it's a matter of being selfish. They've kept a secret and they don't want to be found out. Fear of someone seeing them approach a fire station or hospital to leave their baby causes them to leave them in places where they probably won't make it. It's not even a matter of them not knowing about birth control. They just aren't taking any responsiblity for their actions and it's sickening.

My DD is almost 15, we just had a conversation about Safe-Haven laws the other day. I try to include tidbits of what seems to her like "whatever" type news any time I can. I hope that she will carry it with her..and maybe talk about it to her friends/classmates. She is in 10th grade, I know at that age if it did happen to any of them it would be quite scary.

I hardly think Grandma would say "See? The baby didn't listen, so she dumped it. You behave now."
:-) I'm sure the 6 year old child will be fine. :-)FUN... is a renewable resource!

Not in this case, but just in general....
I wonder how many kids in their mid-teens could get a baby to a hospital or fire station on their own? They're not driving yet, and I can't imagine boarding a bus to ride somewhere to drop off a baby when you've just given birth. KWIM?
I don't know an answer to this, it just never occurred to me before.Just thinkin' out loud....
