HOUSTON— A woman who admitted she abandoned her newborn at a Pasadena hospital is now fighting to get her baby back.
She told a judge Tuesday that she felt overwhelmed because she already has three other children under the age of six. So she said she put the boy in a plastic container and left him outside the Bayside Urgent Care Clinic on Saturday night.
The woman now wants someone in her family to take care of the baby.
Child Protective Services officials said they’ll do a DNA test and then interview her relatives.
In the meantime, the baby boy is in a foster home.
