HOUSTON, TX – It’s hard to imagine abandoning a baby. We’ve seen it happen more than once this year in Harris County.

There was baby Chloe. She was found in a shopping bag in Cypress back in February.

Then there was baby Aiden. He was found near a dumpster at a Southwest Houston apartment in June.

Remarkably, both babies are doing well. But the odds were against them, and they didn’t have to be.

Public Information Officer for the Houston Fire Department, Captain Ruy Lozano, says “If you feel you need that safe haven, and that’s what this is, an extension of the safe haven program, come to the fire station.”

That’s what happened Monday morning.

Someone dropped off a baby, said to be about 6-months-old, at Fire Station 39.

Firefighters went into action.

“They said the true courage probably comes from whoever executed the program instead of finding the baby in a dumpster or in another dangerous place,” said Lozano.

There’s never a happy reason for abandoning a baby, but there can be a happy ending.
