New York Nativity crib baby mother speaks: 'I knew if I left him in God's hands, he would be OK'
Christopher Ryan Heanue
The mother who left her
new-born baby in a New York church's Nativity crib has said that she knew that someone would find him and help him.
Speaking anonymously to the New York Post, she said: "I knew if I left him in God's hands, he would be OK."
Police have agreed not to prosecute her because the case falls under the "safe haven" law, which says that a newborn baby can be dropped off anonymously at a church, hospital, police or fire station without fearing prosecution.
