Mmm.  The website says 57 children are abandoned a day...20,000 a year.  That seems awfully high.  That translates into a LOT of infant adoptions, no???

Here's a quote from the website: 

"Project CuddleŽ was able to retain an attorney, a family wanting to rescue and adopt the baby, as well as an obstetrician, hospital and social counselor. Debbe Magnusen coached this woman through the delivery of a beautiful baby girl. After the baby was delivered into the arms of the adoptive parents, the birth mother said to Debbe. "I feel like I've done something good for the first time.""

Note...RESCUE and adopt the baby. 

The birthmom quote is more than a little suspect.

I agree.  It's insanely off.  Someone cooked the books to get that number.

notice this

Here at home, those working in the field estimate 57 babies a day are abandoned across the country.

Not any names of those people working in the field, no names no recognised statiscal gathering organisations, no government unit quoted. 'Those working in the field' is an incredibly sloppy piece of journalism and reading the whole piece would indicate that the person writing it is not doing so from having researched it but from their personl opinion.

In San Francisco, for example, a report suggested that because the Pomeranian had been abandoned once, it may have sensed the infant's plight.

huh? What report, or was it someones guess or feeling? I know it ends kind of in the right direction but really it is quite a negative piece and many would not take that last bit, it should have been nearer to the beginning.
