Until There Are No More Abandonments


Millions of babies are being abandoned on a global level and together, I believe we CAN stop abandonments.

THAT is my number one focus. To spread awareness internationally, to educate internationally, and to internationally prevent the abandonments of babies.

So what am I doing towards that? Well, many might not know this, but I am actually in charge of all International affairs.

That means every email, phone call, ANYTHING to do with baby boxes internationally goes through me.

That alone is a job in itself. I'm constantly working on box packages, emailing information back and forth...It's never ending.

After our recent meeting in Indiana with the board members, we decided we needed to have different options for different climate- countries.

So for the last four days I've been working on that, as well as packages to send out with all the specs and information.

Our main box (these are the ones being currently used in the US) have been tested in the US, and are designed to Safe Haven Baby Boxes specific qualifications.

These boxes are made up of 1/2" Polypro Copolymer. Black Matte sheet plastics. Its dimensions are 30 x 24 and it weighs a total of 70lbs.

They’re designed to be installed on to the exterior wall of either a fire station, police station, hospitals, or churches. The baby is placed in the box from the outside of the building, where the box is installed. The box also opens from inside the building, where the baby is then, rescued by EMS emergency personnel.

The boxes are equipped with a heating and cooling features, and are very well ventilated.

There are three different ways the boxes alarm emergency personnel.

When the door is opened, an ADT trips an alarm and alerts emergency personnel within 30 seconds. (Once the door has been opened, the door is made to close on its own, and it is then locked. This is a safety feature, to ensure the safety of the newborns)

There are also sensors inside the box, as a second safety precaution, this will also alarm emergency personnel if an infant is placed inside the safe box.

Lastly there is a button, that also alerts 911. The reason for this feature, is more psychological. It provides closure for the mother, and a sense of knowing that she is doing the right thing.

The child is then picked up by EMS within 3-5 minutes.

As you can see, we've thought of everything. And I can assure you, just as much thought, effort, and love, is going into these next three options. These will be available overseas and in other countries.

I may not be delivering the boxes just yet, trust me we’re almost there! But fortunately, I have a lifetime to work on this and I intend to use it.

Until there are no more abandonments!

I'm your Mrs International reminding you-
