Woman Finds Birth Mom Through Viral Facebook Post

  Woman Finds Birth Mom Through Viral Facebook Post The woman wanted to meet her birth mother before moving out-of-state.Bethany Conrad took to Facebook Jan. 25 to announce her plan to track down the whereabouts of her birth mom. The 29-year-old's search efforts, however, appeared to have come to a halt after a woman named Shelly Jimenez Domingo-crowe responded to the post.

The baby was found with a torn umbilical cord and responding medics clamped it to prevent any harm, an airport police report said . Juana Quintana, a custodian, told police she encountered the woman and asked if she was okay after seeing pools of blood on a bathroom floor.

The baby was found with a torn umbilical cord and responding medics clamped it to prevent any harm, an airport police report said . Juana Quintana, a custodian, told police she encountered the woman and asked if she was okay after seeing pools of blood on a bathroom floor.

The woman on the surveillance video arrived at the Tuscon International Airport as an expectant mother, and walked out without her baby boy.

On Tuesday, the Tucson Airport Authority released new information about a Jan. 14 incident, including a video, revealing chilling new details about a woman who authorities say abandoned a newborn in an airport bathroom around 9 p.m. A rental call employee found the boy and a note.

“I just want what is best for him and it is not me. Please. Im sorry,” the note read.

The baby was naked with its eyes closed, Quintana said, but the woman said the baby was three months old and left in a hurried manner.

  OMG: Tyga is demanding a DNA paternity test for Kylie Jenner’s baby girl, Stormi OMG: Tyga is demanding a DNA paternity test for Kylie Jenner’s baby girl, StormiYes, you read that right.

The baby was found with a torn umbilical cord and responding medics clamped it to prevent any harm, an airport police report said . Juana Quintana, a custodian, told police she encountered the woman and asked if she was okay after seeing pools of blood on a bathroom floor.

The woman gave birth to a healthy baby boy in one of the many bathrooms at the Baltimore-Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport . She freaked out and left the baby in the bathroom , abandoning the boy.

Quintana said she found bloody clothes in the trash can with paper towels on top in an apparent effort to conceal them.

The baby appeared healthy otherwise and was transported to a nearby hospital, airport spokeswoman Jessie Butler said in summary provided to The Washington Post. The baby is now in the custody of the Arizona Department of Child Safety, she said.

The airport authority also released photos of the scene and the handwritten letter found with the child.

“Please help me. My mom had no idea she was pregnant. She is unable and unfit to take care of me. Please get me to the authorities so they can find a good home,” the message said, scrawled on notebook paper in the voice of the newborn.

The woman may have acted under assumption she was protected by regulations designed for new mothers to leave newborns with authorities without penalty. The law, known as  the safe-haven law or Baby Moses law, allows newborns to be left at designated areas like hospitals and firehouses to prevent the deadly practice of stranding unwanted babies. It applies in all 50 states, Puerto Rico and Washington, D.C., though states have differing regulations.

68-year-old woman sexually assaulted inside Brampton home: Peel police

  68-year-old woman sexually assaulted inside Brampton home: Peel police The woman was in her home, in the Knightsbridge Road and Central Park Drive area near Bramalea City Centre, when an unknown man came inside and allegedly sexually assaulted the woman before leaving the area. N/R Peel Police - Police Seeking Public’s Assistance in Sexual Assault Investigation - https://t.co/t28mONt4He— Peel Regional Police (@PeelPoliceMedia) February 9, 2018Officers described the man as being approximately 30 years old and having a medium build. He was last seen wearing a black T-shirt with white writing on the front of it.

In 1999, Texas became the first state to pass a safe-haven law following reports of 13 abandoned babies in the Houston area in the first 10 months of the year, which prompted public outcry and legislative action, according to a Nevada state government review of the legal framework. The concept has roots in a similar series of abandoned babies in Alabama in 1998.

But the airports are not among facilities commonly designated as safe havens. Criminal charges have yet to be determined, the Arizona Daily Star reported, and the woman remains unidentified.

“We would like to know who she is but we’ve exhausted our resources,” Butler told the paper. In a summary of the incident, Butler said the airport police are not actively looking for the woman but will pursue any leads they receive.

In Arizona, babies must be under 72 hours old and unharmed to be legally abandoned, and has led to 40 rescues in the state and more than 3,300 nationwide, the Arizona Safe Baby Haven Foundation says.

The group lists six hospitals in the state where “drawers” are used to discreetly leave babies behind, though none of them are in Tucson. At one of the hospitals, Banner Thunderbird Medical Center in Glendale, a drawer is connected to an internal alarm that alerts hospital staff of a dropped baby, according to a 2014 story by Raising Arizona Kids magazine.

“We hear stories where a baby is abandoned, or a mother who has had a baby doesn’t know what to do, doesn’t know who to turn to. There are a lot of different things that are probably going through a mother’s mind. There is a lot of fear,” said Kimberly Marshall, a nurse practitioner and co-founder of the Arizona Safe Baby Haven Foundation.
