Within just weeks of the legislation passing, mother and father began dropping off their children. But here’s the rub: None of them have been infants. A few months in, 36 youngsters had been left in state hospitals and police stations. Twenty-two of the kids were over thirteen years outdated. A 51-year-previous grandmother dropped off a 12-yr-previous boy. One father dropped off his whole family – 9 kids from ages one to 17. Others drove from neighboring states to drop off their children as soon as they heard that they might abandon them with out repercussion.
