Create Lynn's Law

Lynn was abandoned at a bar in Tennessee by her mother. Because Lynn is 19, her mother will not face child abandonment charges. Although Lynn has the mental capacity of a 2 year old, in our legal system she is on her own. After a special needs child turns 18, they are still considered legal adults. Sign this petition to create legislation that will help families with special needs adults emotionally and financially. If they still feel overwhelmed, then we will create programs and outlets to help.

      No one deserves to be abandoned by a close, immediate family member like that. Lynn is a human being that needs love and proper care just like anybody else. She obviously can't take care of herself so she needs someone to do it for her. It's truly a need, not a want.

      Lynn is a very nice girl and I know her personally from school. I just can't believe someone would do something like that.

      Everyone deserves the consequence of their actions.
