NY Mom Leaves Baby in Nativity Scene

A mother in New York brought her baby to a Nativity scene then left her son behind. According to the NY Daily News, the mother acted lawfully since the Nativity scene was located inside a church in Queens. There is a "Safe Haven" law in New York which allows parents to leave babies in certain locations as long as they are not over 30 days old. Other suitable safe havens include hospitals, police stations and firehouses. Police officers said they will not press charges, and many members of the church supported the mother's decision. A member of the church, Brenda Terin, said "The mother did the right thing by leaving (the baby) at the church if she didn't want him." After the story went public, several people offered to adopt the young boy.
