I was driving down a busy highway and almost ran over a 1 year old who ran out in front of me. I stopped and looked around thinking there would be a frantic mom or dad and did not find anyone. I forgot to bring my cell phone and didn't want the child to be ran over so I brought the child out of the road and waited 30 minutes when no mom or dad came out. I wasn't thinking and put the child in my sons car seat and ran to the police office where the police took the child. All I could think about were my children and how even a minute of my children being gone or quiet would send me into a frenzy. Now, at the time I wasn't thinking about someone thinking I stole the child. I was thinking about the child getting killed or ran over so I did what I thought was right.
I'm glad you got him to someplace safe, but I would of knocked on doors. Yes, someone could of said that was their kid, but I doubt it. Plus, you could of asked to see a pic they had of this child because I know I have thousands in our house. Yes, you could think photoshop, but it is worth a try. Plus, a parent should of been close or calling out because they couldn't find their child.
