“This baby is healthy, and safe”

Monica Kelsey, CEO of Safe Haven Baby Boxes, issuing a statement after an infant in Kentucky became the first in the state to be dropped off safely in a “baby box” at a fire station last week. *All 50 states have a safe surrender law that secures a safe drop-off of the newborn and protects the surrendering parent from criminal charges as long as the infant is not a victim of neglect or abuse. “Safe Haven baby Boxes’ are installed into exterior walls of designated hospitals or public safety buildings, providing a safe place to drop off a newborn while remaining anonymous, preventing the illegal abandonment of newborns.


In North Carolina, Ashe County has just installed a Safe Haven Baby Box at the Ashe County Law Enforcement Center in Jefferson.  The Ashe Pregnancy Care Center is involved in spreading the availability of the drop-off box to the local community. DSS and Ashe Memorial hospital are all part of making sure the newborn baby is safe and placed in a safe home.



The longest church service at Asbury University in Kentucky (since 1970) continues.  For over one hundred hours, people have filled the rows of Hughes Auditorium at Asbury to worship. Students and community members continue to find peace in dwelling and worshiping in the chapel which began last Wednesday spontaneously when students felt the urge to stay after the mandatory chapel service.  Note: A revival like this is not uncommon for Asbury. Back in 1970, a similar service lasted for two weeks. Since then, there hasn’t been an act of worship of this length.
