Newborn Baby Left At Hospital In Safe Haven Program
A newborn was relinquished at St. Francis Hospital over the weekend as part of the Safe Haven Act according to the Department of Children and Families.
DCF Spokesperson Gary Kleeblatt said the newborn girl was relinquished by the mother, after giving birth, at Saint Francis Hospital this weekend.
DCF placed the baby with a family who has been previously licensed by the Department for eventual adoption.
State records show that 24 infants have been dropped off under the Safe Haven ACT since 2000. One newborn was found dead in East Hartford last month.
