* A more nightmarish version happened in an episode of ''{{Rescue 911}}'', which ''actually happened''. A couple loggers discovered something by the side of the road and wondered what it was. One of then looked and found it was a bunch of blankets - and inside was a ''baby''. [[FridgeHorror One could only imagine what would have happened if they didn't find them when they did]].

So the mother goes up to a doorstep, puts the baby down, may or may not add a letter and/or an OrphansPlotTrinket, rings the doorbell and slips quietly into the night. The door is opened by the child's adoptive parents, who are always fully accepting of the baby and their new roles as parents instead of contacting the authorities (and it just so happens that someone is always home and awake to answer the door, thus sparing the baby from dying of exposure). Cut to several years later.
