What Are The Safe Haven Laws Foster Care

The safe haven law has an extensive and complex background. It was created in Texas in 1999 in order
to combat an increasing number of infant fatalities due to
 abandonment. It provides parents who cannot provide
their child with care with a humane alternative.

Under these
laws, individuals can relinquish their child to a designated location, where
the child will receive treatment and care. After the infant is provided with
medical treatment, they will usually become a ward of the State and enter into
the
 foster care system. The National Safe Haven Alliances were established in order to help
promote safe surrender laws. These organizations use a wide range of techniques
in order to advertise the benefits of these laws.

The infant
safe haven laws are responsible for saving the lives of thousands of children
throughout the United States and providing these children with a hopeful and
bright future.
