children at a local hospital church or police or fire station lane explained there is always a safer humane choice to surrender a baby and you will not get in trouble or even have to answer any difficult questions take the baby to a fire station or church or hospital and they will take care of them admitting that their community has been having an incredibly difficult time lane then called on others to help their Fellow man clearly someone in our community felt so lost and hopeless that they made probably the hardest choice of their lives to leave that innocent life on the side of the road with nothing but some blankets and a name she wrote but she named
him there’s some love there even if she made a terrible decision wanting to leave the post on a positive note lane concluded i know we’re all struggling i see it i see you i love you all and i’m here today i saved a baby And i’ll probably think about deshawn for the rest of my life hopefully if another mother ever ends up in a similar situation as to sean’s mother they think of him too and remember his story most importantly we hope they remember that there’s a better way and rather than abandoning a child in the cold they explore the safe haven laws in their state if you liked the video please give it a Thumbs up and consider sharing it with someone who may find it interesting.
