A Better Ending

It turns out the story of the baby being thrown out of the window of a car was false. I am relieved to hear that. The woman that reported seeing the baby is actually the mother.

Jenne said the woman had kept her pregnancy a secret from her family and others. He said it turns out to be the case of a "disturbed woman" who gave birth and didn't want to keep the child -- so she made up the story about seeing the baby thrown from a car.

Still, there was no need to get someone else in trouble because of it. It's not in the article but on the radio they said the mother was on her way to the fire station and saw a white car with the occupants arguing and made up the story about them. Imagine if the police had found them?

The woman is in the psychiatric ward and the baby is doing fine. A relatively happy ending, all things considered.

Florida state law allows a mother to take a baby to any medical facility or fire station within the first three days after the baby is born without any questions asked. Sheriff's office spokeswoman Veda Coleman-Wright said that gives parents an option.
