Notice of Abandonment

Greenwood County Department of Social Services (DSS) officials report that an infant was born at Self Regional Hospital on June 14, 2014.  Upon the information and belief of the agency, the child falls under the jurisdiction of “Daniel’s Law,” the Safe Haven for Abandoned Babies Act.

Baby Girl Doe is a healthy Caucasian female who weighed approximately 7 pounds and 9 ounces at birth. The infant is now in DSS custody. 

Under the Safe Haven Act, a permanency planning hearing will be held at the Greenwood County Family Court on Thursday, August 7, 2014 at 1:30 p.m.

Any person wishing to assert parental rights regarding the infant must do so at this hearing.

I know this was a hard but brave choice. I am glad they choose to take it to the hospital instead of doing like all the other news story we hear of dumpsters etc. God bless them and the baby.......

Where could I call to get more information? How would I know if I qualify to adopt this baby?

What would someone need to do to foster this child and possibly adopt?
