Baby Surrendered At Turkey Creek Fire Station
SYRACUSE — Earlier this month a baby was surrendered at Turkey Creek Fire Territory Station 1. This is the third surrender of the year for Indiana and the third Indiana baby.
A press conference will be held at 11 a.m. Friday, March 17, at the fire station, 402 N. Huntington St., Syracuse.
“While we understand that the surrender of a baby is a difficult decision to make, our department is proud to be available as an option when and if this decision must be made under the Indiana Safe Haven Law,” stated Mickey Scott, fire chief.
Monica Kelsey, founder of Safe Haven Baby Boxes explained, “Each time we get a call that a baby has been surrendered we know that the birth mother has lovingly surrendered their child in hopes of them having a better life. We are proud of this brave mother. It is a a joy to see the Safe Haven Law working to protect women in crisis and their infants from abandonment.”
