the mother delivered what appeared to be a healthy baby boy in the back of an ambulance parked in a firehouse bay.CAfter giving birth the woman told firefighters she wanted to surrender the child.
The woman didn't give a reason as to why, but under Colorado's instant Safe Haven Law a parent can surrender a newborn child to medical workers, a hospital or a fire station within 72 hours and face no criminal charges. The process is anonymous. The baby is at Poudre Valley Hospital and is reportedly doing well. Anyone interested in
adopting the infant should call the Larimer County Adoption phone
