As always, it is important to share that the Safe Surrender for Newborns law allows a distressed parent who is unable or unwilling to care for a newborn baby to legally, confidentially and safely surrender the baby to an employee at any hospital or fire station. This law was created in honor of the countless babies who have lost their lives to newborn abandonment.
