The Texas woman who abandoned a 2-year-old boy on a stranger's doorstep because she believed she was leaving him at his dad's house is speaking out about the mixup.
Keairra Woods was arrested last week and charged with felony child abandonment, according to KTRK.
The Montgomery County Sheriff's Office released ring doorbell video that shows Woods callously carrying the toddler by one arm and depositing him on a doorstep. She laughs as she rings the bell, knocks on the door and runs back to her car.
The homeowner who answered the door called 911, and the boy was taken into custody by the state child welfare agency.

Woods tells ABC13 that she was on the phone with Royal Simmons's mom, who was in the hospital. The boy's mom was giving her directions to her baby daddy's home.
Woods blamed Royal's mom for giving her bad directions to his father's house.
"That should have let you know I was at the wrong house because you know your baby daddy don't drive so many cars," she said she told the boy's mother.
Woods said Royal's stepmother took out a restraining order on the boy's mother, and she didn't want to get involved in the dispute between the parties involved.
"The only reason I took off running was because it was chilly outside, and I didn't have no sweater on, as you can see in the video."
She continued to blame her hospitalized friend, saying, "At the end of the day, y'all trying to blame me, but it was really the mother's fault. I'm just an innocent bystander.
Royal was identified by his father hours later when a team of police returned in the daytime to canvas the houses on the street.
According to Rollingout.com, the police haven't made a decision whether to charge Woods with child endangerment.
