Several months ago, Nebraska passed a law that let anyone drop off their kid at a hospital and effectively wash their hands of the little buggers. Most states have similar rules. Only Nebraska had no age limit on the kids -- children in their late teens were being abandoned to the state.
Eventually, the Nebraska legislators fixed this. But there were still 29 kids left from this little experiment. This week, though, two young men were adopted -- the first of the castaways to find permanent homes, the Omaha World-Herald reports. Their dad had given up custody for them and seven siblings. Dad actually attended the adoption proceedings.
