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.
Thanks to Trisha for the tip.
