“Since then, more things have been discovered,” Detective Frank Kisari said.
Officials said on Wednesday that they have been in contact with their biological mother since late November and were able to find her through DNA matching. She told the authorities that she had given birth to three children herself.
The detective also revealed that all three babies were from the same parents, but at this time the identity of their biological father was unknown.
Hisari said: “We are seeking help to identify our biological mother and provide her with the necessary services. At the same time, we are still considering the possible criminal charges against her.”
Investigators from the Orlando Police Department said they are working with the state attorney’s office to understand the charges she may face and how to hold her accountable.
Chisari said: “You can’t just let the children at the door of the apartment without knowing who will take care of them.”
Together with Chief Orlando Rolon (Orlando Rolon), he emphasized Florida’s Safe Haven Law, which allows newborn babies 7 days or less to be surrendered in hospitals, emergency medical services or fire stations. When the baby is handed over, the parents terminate their parental rights.

The detective said: “It is very important to comply with state laws when handing over a child.”
As for the brothers and sisters, the police said all three are healthy. Authorities said that two of the children were in the same home, one was adopted and the other was in foster care. The third is in another home.
Investigators said that adoptive parents and adoptive parents have been cooperating in the investigation.
The authorities added that this is an open criminal investigation and the biological mother is also cooperating with detectives. They are leaving her notes with the children as they discussed the case further with the state attorney’s office. As of Wednesday, no lawsuits have been filed.
OPD detective said: “Those kids are put in a wonderful situation, but this is not always the case.”
Rollon asked, if someone feels they can’t bear the pressure of becoming a parent, they should remember Florida’s laws. The baby can stay in the hospital or fire station.
