Return to Sanity

I posted earlier about Nebraska "safe-haven" law intended to protect unwanted babies and infants. Now the state has amended its law to restrict the age of children that can be dropped off to 30 days or less.

Parents of 35 children -- 29 of them older than 10 -- have dropped off their kids at Nebraska hospitals since the law took effect in September, according to the state Department of Health and Human Services. Five came from other states, with parents traveling to Nebraska from Michigan, Indiana, Iowa, Florida and Georgia.

Officials said no infants were among the children left at hospitals
