We get this all the time. Private organizations funded by the State set drop points for this.... The mothers are usually teens. In this case I'm enclined to beleive it's Syrian refugee..... Haram walla, m3attarin.

I agree! it is time for me to adopt a child. Is that legal in lebanon.

I wish I could adopt too. Unfortunately, it is next to impossible to adopt in the US a child from Lebanon.

I strongly disagree. Giving away a child is the HARDEST thing a woman can do in her lifetime. In my city, a few months ago, a teen girl gave birth in the loo. The baby died. She probably couldn't afford buying diapers of if she lives in a bidonville she doesn't have water to wash him (nor money for vaccins, paediatrics,etc...) the baby girl will be in better care now. There's plenty of people who want to adopt children but don't manage to. Something must be done to help and filter these people to see who's qualified.

FT, your solutions are hitlerish. Why am I not surprised? Your lack of humanism is disturbing. The baby didn't die because the person who put it there knew people go through our Leb trashes every 5 min. I'm not going to get through my personal life but I know this world inside out. You accuse people without knowing anything about them. So who told you the mother isn't 12 y.o or 13? Would you like to have a kid living in a cardboard home with no water, heating, light and so on? The baby girl is in good hands now. The State should do something to help women before they get to doing such a desperate move. I don't expect you to understand.

putting politics aside, i can see flamethrower representing me here.

I agree flame with all you said.
you do have a heart after all.....:)

if the mother cannot afford to take care of a baby, she could have given him to an adoption agency. if she wanted to stay incognito, she can leave the child at the door of a church or a mosque as last resort (if she doesnt want to talk directly to the priest or cheikh).

leaving a baby in trash is a crime.

very good idea. i don't think the current gov cares about such things....

This is exactly what should be done. I don't think it is about "the government not caring", but rather a societal mind set. Institutions for women's health and care, specially, for such situations must be demanded to be established by the people without religious backlash.

sounds like something a hezballah supporter would do.
or an ouni.

Although tragic, Horrible and somewhat unnatural, and assuming that the mother does not have any mental illness such as postpartum depression, I put the blame squarely on society. Did you stop to think about the shame and the subsequent consequences this girl and her newborn child would face.
