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.
Call 1-800-FOR-BABY. In an emergency, call 911.
