Indiana's Safe Haven Law went into effect in 2000, but it wasn't until 2008 that the Department of Child Services began tracking Safe Haven Babies.

Since then, at least 47 infants have been successfully surrendered under the Safe Haven Law.

The map below shows how many Safe Haven surrenders each county has had. You can click on the numbers to see the dates of those surrenders.
