The baby was was in good health when she was dropped off, according to fire officials. Alysha said medication left with the baby indicate that her name is Lily.
Under the “Baby Moses Law,” a child under 60-days-old can be dropped off at a fire station without consequence. Lily is 5-months-old, but local authorities said Alysha still did the right thing.
“This one doesn’t quite qualify,” said Cpt. Ruy Lozano with the Houston Fire Department. “But just because it doesn’t qualify doesn’t mean it’s not the right thing to do.”
The baby’s mother, Stephanie Estrada, 23, was arrested early Tuesday morning in the parking lot of a bar in Houston. Police say she was picked up on outstanding warrants.
