* No Criminal Charges for Mom Who Abandoned Daughter
Last Summer, a mother drove her nineteen year old daughter (who has severe special needs), across state lines for the purpose of abandoning her.

She didn’t break any laws, because laws regarding what she did had not been written … yet. I wrote this for the Special Needs Blog at Families.com.
