What you know about North Carolina's Safe Surrender Law could save a life

North Carolina’s Safe Surrender Law allows an overwhelmed parent to surrender a newborn to a responsible adult and walk away. The baby will then be placed in a loving home.

An infant up to 7 days old may be surrendered to any responsible adult.

Safe surrender is anonymous and legal.
