A baby in Elk Ridge, Utah, was born addicted to heroin. Her parents gave her Suboxone, a medication that treats adult opioid addicts, to hide her addiction from hospital staff, Time reported.

Colby Glen Wilde and Lacey Dawn Christenson lost custody of all their children when the baby was found to have heroin, morphine, and methamphetamine in her system. Christenson used these drugs during her pregnancy. Her two older children also had methamphetamine in their systems.

Lawrence Jones wished that adoption was less expensive on this weekend's "Lawrence Jones Show" so that loving families can more easily care for the many children born into situations such as this one.
