Why the family told Govi’s story
Kansas City Star
Cases of severe abuse and neglect happen all too often and rarely do we know what becomes of the victims.
The Kansas Newborn Infant Protection Act (K.S.A. 38-2282)
This law allows a parent, or other person having lawful custody, to surrender an infant to any employee who is on duty at a fire station, city or county health department, or medical care facility. The infant must be 45 days or younger. A parent can surrender an infant without legal repercussions if there is no abuse or neglect.
