Nebraska’s new Safe Haven Law allows any child up to the age of 17 to be dropped off at a ‘safe haven’ if the parent or guardian can no longer care for them. In most states the safe haven laws only apply to newborns.
In the past week 2 kids were dropped off at Nebraska safe havens. One was 11 and the other was 15.
My question to you the reader is this such a bad thing? Isn’t it better for the state to find a home for these kids rather than have them live in a home where they’re not wanted?
