The 50th Safe Haven Baby Box in the nation has been installed at a Muncie Fire Station, reports Muncie Journal.
Two babies that were surrendered under Indiana’s Safe Haven Law were in attendance at the event along with their adoptive families. Indiana leads the nation with 46 Safe Haven Baby Boxes available at hospitals and fire stations.
Several communities in Indiana, Ohio, Florida, Pennsylvania and Arkansas have plans to install Safe Haven Baby Boxes within the next year.
Safe Haven Baby Box Inc. is a non-profit founded by firefighter/medic Monica Kelsey. Kelsey was abandoned as an infant and founded the organization after seeing illegal abandonment throughout the country
