Recently, I was driving and heard a news blurb about abandoned babies in Illinois. Nineteen had been safely abandoned under the State’s new safe haven law. It nearly didn’t register but then it struck me: one of the 19 babies was safely buckled in… the car seat behind me. Our little one was made possible by the efforts of the Save Abandoned Babies Foundation, the State law that made it possible for him to be safely relinquished, and the mother that cared enough for herself and her child to have a healthy pregnancy.
Our child is very healthy, happy, and above all, loved. The safe haven law provided both a happy ending to the story of our child’s birth and a wonderful beginning to a life filled with so much promise. From our child and his new grandparents, aunts, uncles, extended family, church family, his new mother, and myself… Thank you with the deepest gratitude for all your efforts and ongoing work on behalf of abandoned babies.
– Happy Illinois Daddy
