Baby Matthew – Safe Haven Baby #1

We are the parents of the first safely relinquished baby under Illinois’ safe haven law.  We have a difficult time finding the right words to express how grateful we are to the Save Abandoned Babies Foundation (SAB) for making this law possible and the tremendous, loving it continues to provide.

Our son Matthew is the absolute light of our lives. He is a happy, healthy and very energetic little boy. We are so glad the safe haven law made it possible for his birth mother to make such a loving, unselfish decision.

All we can say is thank you – thank you to everyone involved with the Save Abandoned Babies Foundation and the safe haven law, as well as our son’s birth mother.  All of you hold a very special place in our hearts.

It is truly a joy to have Matthew call us Mommy and Daddy, a joy which we would not have experienced without the hard, exhausting work of the SAB Foundation.

Thank you so much!
John, Tracy, and Matthew
