I am forever grateful for the Save Abandoned Babies Foundation (SAB) because they are the main reason we currently have our daughter. In November 2014, our beautiful baby girl was relinquished to a fire department using the Safe Haven Law. Our greatest gift, our greatest miracle, our baby girl came to us because of the hard work of this foundation. SAB's tireless efforts in getting the Safe Haven Law enacted and to be well known allowed our birth mom to make the best decision possible for her baby by allowing her to be adopted instead of abandoning her in some unsafe place. Because of SAB, our baby girl was given a chance at life with a family who loves her beyond words. I cannot say enough about this foundation!

The Save Abandoned Babies Foundation is on the forefront of important legislation and awareness programs in an effort to save babies lives. Whenever we hear news of a newborn who has been abandoned and left to die, we all feel sadness, but we also know there is work to be done to ensure everyone is aware of Illinois' Safe Haven Law. The foundation is run and supported by incredibly dedicated individuals, all of whom volunteer their time and talents without pay. It is a labor of love. We became involved when our daughter was safely handed over through the Safe Haven Law and eventually made her way to us through adoption. We have come to know many families who have also adopted Safe Haven babies and all these children are so precious. It is through the diligent efforts of the Save Abandoned Babies Foundation that the birthmothers of these children had an alternative to them that may well have prevented a terrible tragedy. Thanks go out to all the staff and volunteers of this very important charity that does so much good. They create loving families, save the lives of babies, provide peace of mind to birthmothers, and so much more.

SAB is a wonderful organization. I can only hope it gets the recognition and publicity it deserves to do good for future babies. Word of mouth helps, but the press would be better. I believe it would be utlized more if the general public if it was communicated more broadly. Can't thank SAB enough for one of the most precious gifts in my life!
