Mother Gives Baby to Strangers

HOUSTON (KPRC) - A mother who police say abandoned her 5-month-old daughter in a Houston, Texas hotel room has been charged.

Officials say Baby Lily was found at the Cullen Inn Motel by two women Monday afternoon. Those women then dropped the baby off at Houston Fire Station No. 35.

One of those women, identified only as Alysha, said she and the other woman ran into the baby's mother, identified as 23-year-old Stephanie Estrada, in the street around 3 a.m. Monday.

Alysha says Estrada asked if they would take care of her daughter for the night.

When the women returned to the motel, Alysha says she realized Baby Lily had been left in the room by herself.
