Safe Arms for Newborns

Stories like this always make me really sad, but at least the baby is OK. These stories, of babies found dead and abandoned, absolutely kill me.

Still, it's amazing how much one person can do, isn't it? Debi Faris, founder of The Garden of Angels, initiated and pushed legislation to create the safe abandonment law in California, so that babies could be left at hospitals and other designated drop areas without their parents getting in trouble. It's an alternative to tossing them in a dumpster. Here's just the first story of a life saved because of her actions.

Colorado also has this law. You learn something new every day!
