ARLINGTON, Texas — Life will be much different for one Texas newborn.
Arlington police found a newborn boy in a suitcase near a dumpster. The boy, temporarily being called ‘Jason’, was about two hours old when he was found outside an apartment complex.
Police took the baby to a hospital where he was cared for by child protective services and the Alliance of Children.
This week, officers from the Arlington Police Department hosted a baby shower to celebrate Jason.
They’re also using the incident to remind people of the Texas Safe Haven Law allowing mothers or a third part to leave an unharmed baby at any hospital, fire station, or emergency medical service provider.
