Baby Found in Walmart Bag

Last week, a newborn baby was found alive in a plastic Walmart bag by an apartment complex in Houston, Texas. Chloe, as hospital staff named her, is now a week old and has been released from the hospital and into the care of a foster family. Child Protective Services says it's hoping to find the birth parents to determine the baby's medical history "'so the person who is adopting this baby can have some more genetic family medical background on the baby to be able to raise her with more knowledge or information about her." Chloe was found by a woman walking her dog in the neighborhood—a surprising discovery since a Texas law called "Safe Haven" allows anyone to drop a child off at a hospital or fire station with no legal repercussions.
