A mother in Indiana made the most selfless act by surrendering her newborn, however, this couldn’t have happened without the help of a 19-year-old.
Hunter Wart raised $10K for a community Safe Haven Baby Box where mothers could surrender their newborn, no questions asked.
Hunter spent over a year mowing lawns and scrapping metal to raise money for the Safe Haven Baby Box installation, in June 2019. (Picture below).
Less than a year later, a baby girl was found inside the Safe Haven Baby Box that Hunter helped to install.
“It was a lot of hard work,” his mom Julia Kwasniewski told CNN in an interview. “A lot of blood, sweat and tears.”
Thankfully, baby girl Mia was found healthy and safe. Firefighters were immediately alerted as soon as she was dropped off.
Hats off to Hunter Wart, Seymour Fire Department and Safe Haven Baby Boxes.
