We are saving lives. No name, no blame, no shame. One hundred years from now, it will not matter what your bank account was. It won’t matter the sort of house you lived in or the car you drove. But the world may be different because you were important in the life of a child. Safe Haven Law- unharmed infant within 30 days of birth left with personnel at hospitals, fire or police station. Tell a friend. Talk about it. You might save a life.

01/14/2021

In light of this week's tragedy of an illegal abandonment in Glenview Illinois, we have written to Governor Pritzker to hold a press conference to remind people of this law.

Since this law was enacted in August, 2001, 142 newborns have been safely relinquished under the law. Sadly, in this time, 84 babies were unsafely abandoned, of which 43 did not survive. We believe that had these parents been aware of Illinois’ Safe Haven Law, none would have perished.

Please join us and write to the governor and request he publicly reminds people of the Safe Haven Law so that no other baby is abandoned illegally.

If you do not live in Illinois, write to your state governor and ask for a press conference. Together we can make a difference!

Newborn Baby Found Abandoned In Glenview: Police

It’s only January and there’s already been an ILLEGAL abandonment that has happened here in Illinois. Our New Year Resolution is to put an end to this and get the word about the Safe Haven Law out! The mother has been found. And thankfully the baby has been transferred to Lutheran General Hospital and is in stable condition.

We need YOUR help to end this! The Safe Haven Law allows mother's to LEGALLY relinquish her unharmed newborn to a staff member at a hospital, fire house, or police department. No questions asked, no fear of prosecution.

Sharing these sweet baby smiles with all who support Save Abandoned Babies! This is Baby #38, and today is her birthday! She is turning 13 today. Thirteen! There are no words to convey my gratitude for Safe Haven Law and the incredible work of Save Abandoned Babies. Our daughter changed our family forever in the best possible way. Forget all the bad things you hear about teenagers these days, because this gal is gonna make a GREAT teenager. She's my sun and moon and stars and everything in between. She is loved and adored by so many friends and family. She has wonderful friends of her own, and she is a wonderful friend to them. Her teachers and school principals say her smile lights up the whole school. Thank you to all who support Save Abandoned Babies! God bless you all!

It's become a tradition on Zoe's birthday we celebrate at Dairy Queen. Five years ago this was the spot where we received a phone call from our adoption agency that a baby was abandoned at a hospital under the safe haven law. We are so grateful that Zoe's birth mom knew about the safe haven law and chose for her to have a great life. You can leave your baby, up to 30 days old, with a staff member at any hospital, fire station, or police station no questions asked in Illinois. April is Safe Haven Awareness Month! Please share with others and educate them about the IL Safe Haven Law!

Some may fear that a relinquished baby will get stuck in “the system,” but that couldn’t be further from the truth. Little Frankie was welcomed into his forever family just 2 weeks after being relinquished by his birth mom. Now at 8 months old he has spent nearly his entire life showered with love from his whole adoptive family. This precious baby, in his 118 year old christening gown handed down from his adoptive great great grandpa, is the face of safe, legal and loving relinquishment.
We are eager, excited, and ready to adopt and grow our family. If there are any birth moms that are considering adoption for their child, please let us know if you would like to view our portfolio. We are home study approved and have completed all of our medical and background clearances. We look forward to talking with you!

September 8th will be the 4th Annual Motorcycle Run for Save Abandoned Babies. We are looking for more motorcycles this year so if you know someone that rides please let them know about this event. Derek Hardy is hosting this because he loves motorcycle runs but because he believes THIS is the most important one because the safe haven children would not have a chance at life with this Foundation. The motorcycle run will be held at Rookies in Huntley, IL. Registration starts at 9 bikes leave at 10 for a 53 mile police escorted ride. It would also be wonderful if some of the Safe Haven families come for the event.
