SecretAgentWoman: I hope momma is ok.I mean, we all assume she volunteered to give the baby up for the good of the baby...But my mind wonders about the full story. I hope she gets the help she needs.
Bith Set Me Up: [img.fark.net image 588x351]Well, it's better than the corner...
Kirablue42: The sad thing is that there are only two in the country..there needs to be more.
jsmilky: There used to more of these around, but then people would dump their two-year-olds in there.
Antimatter: There are only two of these? I thought it was a common thing in some areas.
gingerjet: Kirablue42: The sad thing is that there are only two in the country..there needs to be more.California's "Safely Surrendered Baby Law" allows someone to surrender their newborn at a designated facility (usually a fire department or emergency room) within three days without any repercussions./and no one posted something from MASH yet? You disappoint.
abhorrent1: This was like a week ago and I'm pretty sure the babies name is pete.

fickenchucker: Kudos to the mom for bringing an apparently unwanted pregnancy to fruition and safely giving the child up for adoption.I know women who have aborted (murdered) babies.I know women who have medical problems and desperately want to adopt, but are victim to a lack of home-grown supply.It's wonderful this community is wise and allows a mom to chose anonymous adoption over murder, sorry "termination".
DilemmaDave: I have no snark for this.Horrible, but courageous decision by the mother. I cant even imagine.Hope both mother and child fare well....
astouffer: Didn't some place try this before but never set an age limit? Then one day someone drops off two teenagers.
Greybrd: This was on the news here, it's around 45-50 miles west of where I live. I think it's great that they actually got some use out of it, it's been there for awhile if I remember right. Props to the parent for realizing they were in over their head or whatever it was, at least they did the right thing by not leaving it in on the side of the road or something like that.In other news, their fire chief still uses a pager but I'm not sure if that's a fireman thing or not. It's still good to hear some good news like this, there's too much bad news these days about babies or small children and for once, a good use of public money.
elkraf: What does the Birth Certificate of a "baby box" baby look like?
