Newborns, less than seven days old, can be left at participating hospitals or 24/7 staffed fire/EMS stations without fear of repercussions.
Seventeen years ago, at approximately 5 a.m. on a Saturday morning, the 24/7 confidential helpline received a call that a beautiful, healthy newborn girl was left in the arms of a Florida firefighter at a fire station. Her mother wanted the baby to have a future she could not provide. The firefighters named the baby Carol Gloria. Gloria was the name of Nick’s wife.
“I do not believe in coincidence. I was overwhelmed with joy,” Nick said when he was told the baby’s name.
What is more important than saving the life of a precious, innocent newborn?
