    There's been so much information in the media, at least in central Indiana, this past month about the Safe Haven Law, especially due to controversy over Safe Haven Baby Boxes.

    Good for her! Glad the sheriff's dept. is planning to recognize her in some way.

    A 10 year old has more common sense than some adults.

    Wow what a lucky little baby! I hope she finds a loving family who adopts her. Kudos to the girl who found her.

    Btw, maggots emerge within 20 hours after the eggs are laid, but need at least 8 hours. So Baby Jane Doe must have been lying in the backyard for at least 8 hours all alone.
