Short comment today.
Tuesday’s Miami Herald published the area’s latest baby dump story, Newborn girl left at Coral Springs. (my emphasis)
Several firefighters were in the Coral Springs fire station Monday night when a baby’s cry summoned them outside where they found a newborn girl.
“She was wrapped in some T-shirts,” said Mike Moser, spokesman for Coral Springs Fire Department. “The child still had the umbilical cord and some of the placenta attached.”
Firefighters took the baby to Northwest Medical Center where doctors examined her. She was in good condition.
Then, she was taken to Safe Haven for Newborns, a state organization that works closely with private adoption agencies, Moser said….
where she was, (I say) neutralized, homogenized, and statisticalized into the “safe haven” system, never more to be seen or heard.
Sorry folks, this is not a ‘safe haven” case. A legal dump requires that an infant to be handed over in person, not left in a basket, or box, or dropped in the grass like an old sock. The baby was left unattended outside a fire station.
But why quibble with legalities? Apparently, the State of Florida treats illegal abandonment as a legal “safe surrender” abandonment, to cook its books to claim “another baby saved.” These shenanigans certainly don’t hurt the Safe Haven for Newborn fund raising efforts, either or the politicians and “professionals” associated with it.
Florida, a hub of corrupt and secret adoption, is one of the few states that mandates “safe havened” babies go directly into the private adoption $pammer to be anonymized and placed in politically correct homes for hefty lawyer and agency fees. The state child welfare system, while deeply flawed, at least demands some accountability. Once a baby is “disappeared” in private industry, there is none.
Anybody in Florida know more about A Safe Haven for Newborn Director Nick Silverio’s activities with private agencies? Finder’s fees?
