The value of safe places for children is our topic. Melissa, with the Save Abandoned Babies Foundation, and her 5-year old daughter are here.
If you hand your baby to personnel at a police or fire station, your newborn will be taken to the nearest hospital and receive a health exam, any needed medical care and be adopted by a loving family. Safe places include hospitals, emergency care facilities, police stations and staffed fire stations.
Keep in mind, once you've handed over your unharmed baby to a hospital worker, police officer or firefighter, you are free to leave. You do not have to give your name or answer any questions. No one will try to stop you or follow you.
