I’ve done a lot of stories about Nebraska and their old wacky safe haven law. I’ve done a lot of stories about babies being listed on craigslist that usually turn out to be pranks. Now the two have come together and it’s not a hoax.
A woman from La Vista, Nebraska had her 1 1/2-year-old baby listed on craigslist like she was trying to find a kitten a new home.
“he is adorable. . . . (He) deserves a mommy that is not addicted to Meth . . . unfortunately I am!”
“I am scared . . . I am desperate . . . can anyone help me . . . can anyone help (him)? PLEASE. . . BEFORE I do something CRAZY!”
While it’s kind of admirable that she realizes that she has a problem and is willing to do something for her child so that he or she can have a better life, craigslist is not the way to go about it. Especially considering how many predators lurk on craigslist.
Luckily the state has taken the child into custody for now.
