By Donna Green-Townsend – WUFT-FM

Firefighters in Lake Mary, Florida answered a doorbell today and were met with a woman carrying a baby who wanted to leave it with them under the state’s safe-haven program.  The baby was taken to a hospital for evaluation.  The safe-haven program allows parents to bring babies up to seven days old to fire stations and other facilities while remaining anonymous with no questions asked.  Donna Green-Townsend talked to the Founder and CEO of the Safe Haven For Newborns Program, Nick Silverio about today’s case and  why the program makes a difference.
