LAKE PARK The woman calmly walked to the fire station door, clutching her hours-old baby, three other young children at her side. <snip> "I want to give you this baby," said the mother, who looked to be in her 30s. A fire inspector asked the woman if she was sure. She said yes, placed the baby in DeMario's arms, and walked out with the other children. As a stunned DeMario gazed at the infant, later dubbed "Baby Doe," he realized she'd been turned over to him under the state's safe-haven law. <snip> "Once she gave me the baby, I lost touch with everything else around me," said DeMario, who has a 3-year-old daughter and another daughter about to turn 1. "I couldn't imagine what she was going through that she had to do this." DeMario and his crew hopped in their fire truck and drove the baby to St. Mary's Medical Center in West Palm Beach, where doctors determined she was healthy, but a bit too cold. They placed her under heat lamps as DeMario watched, feeling a bit like a new dad again. "It didn't feel right just leaving her there, so we stayed." <snip> It was better to see a baby here than left in a Dumpster somewhere," said DeMario. "The law worked the way it's supposed to." more at the link http://www.palmbeachpost.com/pbcnorth/content/local_news/epaper/2006/09/09/s3b_baby_0909.html God bless this mother for making this decision. All states should have this law and it needs to be advertised more. Maybe then we would quit reading about babies found in dumpsters.
