A baby was successfully surrendered on Sunday in a Safe Haven baby box in the Louisville suburb of Clarksville. The newborn was placed in the box; the action ensures the newborn will find an adoptive family within 30 to 45 days.
Safe Haven Baby Boxes are available at different locations — including at Vincennes Fire Department headquarters. The box is available for use for newborns whose parent or parents feel they can’t care for the baby. The option gives the parent or parents of newborns a legal way of surrendering their baby within the first couple of weeks after birth.
More information on surrendering an infant in the Safe Haven Baby Box is available at 866-99-BABY-1.
