(Schererville, IN) - Another little baby was safely surrendered in a Safe Haven Baby Box. This time over in Schererville.
Authorities did not reveal exactly when it happened. The location was Schererville’s Fire Department #2. It’s the second newborn recovered there in the last year and a half.
Safe Haven Baby Boxes are devices built into the wall of an emergency response location, where a newborn baby can be safely turned over without any questions asked. Adoption happens with pre-screened families in 30-45 days.
This is the seventh baby handed over in Indiana this year.
There are two Safe Haven Baby Boxes in La Porte County—at Franciscan Health in Michigan City and at the Coolspring Township Fire Department, with another being installed at La Porte Fire Station 2.
