Another great story from the headlines! Safe Haven is expanding beyond the United States. Though often referred to as Hope's Cradle safe surrender it is the exact same concept as Safe Haven. The first Hope's Cradle site in Manitoba, Canada will be in Landmark Hill. This is only the second site in all of Canada. Expansion, education, accessibility, and resources are the key saving the babies. You can read the entire story by visiting the website https://www.mysteinbach.ca/news/11800/first-infant-surrender-site-in-manitoba-to-be-located-in-the-landmark-fire-station/

Love is all around, and you can help spread the word. There are countless families in Illinois who want nothing more than to bring a little baby home to their loving family. Tell someone you know about the Law today, and remind them that any under the law, an unharmed baby can be handed to personnel at a hospital, firehouse or police station within 30 days of birth, and the mother can walk out with no questions asked. So hug your little ones a little tighter tonight, and help us make a brighter future for some young women, and these little bundles of joy. Learn more at http://saveabandonedbabies.org/

IL Save Abandoned Babies talks about the importance of the Safe Haven law as a safe option for all who may need this.
April is Month. The Safe Haven law is a simple, safe, legal alternative to unsafe infant abandonment. A parent can hand an unharmed newborn less than 30 days old to staff at hospitals, emergency medical care facilities, police stations, firehouses, college and university police stations and Illinois State Police district headquarters and walk away with no questions asked. If you need help, call 888-510-BABY. For more info, visit https://saveabandonedbabies.org.

This is the type of news we dread. Baby boy illegally abandoned and did not survive. He was left in a duffle bag outside a firehouse. All it would have taken for him to still be alive would be for the parent to leave the child in the arms of staff at a Safe Haven. Then, they could have walked away anonymously, legally and without fear of repercussions and given their son a life with a forever family. Instead, an innocent child is dead. Our hearts ache. Poor sweet baby! This did not have to happen and we are so sorry for what they did to you.

CHICAGO - Chicago police said a newborn was found dead on the Near North Side inside a duffel bag.

Officials said the baby boy was found on the 1000 block of North Orleans Street around 5 a.m. Saturday morning. The Chicago Tribune reported that the bag was found covered with snow outside a firehouse. No further information was provided and Area Three detectives are investigating.

The Illinois Safe Haven law allows parents to bring an unharmed baby up to 30 days old to a staff member at a hospital, fire station, police station or emergency care facility no questions asked.

For more information, call 1-888-510-2229 or visit saveabandonedbabies.org. Or Save Abandoned Babies

The Safe Haven Law was passed 20 years ago this week. The law is a simple, safe, legal alternative to unsafe infant abandonment. A parent can hand an unharmed newborn less than 30 days old to staff at hospitals, emergency medical care facilities, police stations, firehouses, college and university police stations and Illinois State Police district headquarters and walk away with no questions asked. But the law doesn't work if nobody knows about it. Help spread the word. Order FREE posters, brochures and other materials here: http://saveabandonedbabies.org/files/ Save Abandoned Babies
