Loophole in the Law
Courtney made headlines when she tried to leave her 15-year-old daughter at a hospital in Nebraska. The mother says she used a loophole in the state’s safe haven law to get her daugher the treatment she otherwise would not have received.
Left at an airport at just 10 days old, Elizabeth was given the nickname “Delta Dawn” by the pilots who found her. And, Michael, who was left in a trash can by his birth mother, was saved by a night watchman.
