Petition Closed

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.

Change 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. After a special needs child turns 18, they are still considered legal adults. Close this loop in the law and save other special-needs children from being abandoned by their parents.
