Another Baby Box Story
Monica Kelsey, firefighter and medic who is president of Safe Haven Baby Boxes Inc., poses with a prototype of a baby box, where parents could surrender their newborns anonymously, outside her fire station in Woodburn, Ind., Thursday, Feb. 26, 2015. The box is actually a newborn incubator, or baby box, and it could be showing up soon at Indiana hospitals, fire stations, churches and other selected sites under legislation that would give mothers in crisis a way to surrender their children safely and anonymously.

Chattanooga, Tennessee—(Wise Brother)
A firefighter in Florida just
adopted a baby that was left outside his station back in January. Someone left her in a “Safe Haven” baby box, which a lot of fire departments have now. He’s the one who found her.
Her name is Zoey, and she’s five months old now. He and his wife had been trying to have kids for over a decade, so they’re thrilled. He says he locked eyes with Zoey and “that was it.” He loved her immediately.
