Consequences of Child Abandonment

Dr. Jaime Fernandez, Pediatric Neonatologist with Homestead Hospital, says it is important to understand that the bond between a mother and a child is the most sacred, and that is why handing a baby over is an act of love. "I think that a mom who chooses another alternative will be haunted and convicted by that choice for the rest of her life." He also explains education is the key to prevent an unwanted pregnancy.
