When I was born, the nurses took me to my biological mother so she could hold me, nurse me, etc. She held me for about 5 minutes, then once the doctoral staff had left her alone, she removed all her IV's and monitors and left me wrapped in a blanket in the little crib in the room. She took off, they attempted to check her records and she had used a fake name and social. I was born addicted to amphetamines, so once I was weened, I got moved to a Masonic Home, then adopted after about 3 months there. I do feel for this child, but it was probably the best thing that could have happened in that situation. If the mother was scratching her arms, she is most likely strung out on something. Hopefully the kid will get placed before it's older, it tends to make the adoption process easier for the child if they're too young to remember.

I used to hate my birth mother for abandoning me, I thought she was heartless. Now that I'm older, I understand it was probably the hardest decision she ever had to make, and I'm grateful she had the smarts to do that instead of tossing me in a toilet or dumpster.

"She was nervous, she was scratching her arms and forearms, I guess she was kind of nervous."

Meth's a hell of a drug.

Think of it this way - that baby is better off without its mother. By passing it off to a total stranger, she did a better thing for it than attempting to care for it herself, because it's clear that she would be completely incapable of caring for it.

We need to take away the stigma of adoption in this country. In these case, you know your parents cared about you because they DIDN'T subject you to their f*ckuppery.

Never look a gift horse in the mouth! Ungrateful little twit. A nice lady gives him a brand new baby and what does he do? Whine. The nerve of some people.

Slartibeerfest: Nobody puts bleeding baby in a bag...

Thanks Slartibeerfest for making my chuckle at an otherwise extremely depressing story.
I'm glad it had a happy ending for the baby.

"I'm not sure why people would do that when she could just take it in to the hospital instead of just dropping it off at the front door and expecting somebody else to take it in," Goldfarb said.

Really? Can't think of a single reason?

I can think of more than one pretty easily.
