There’s nothing else to explain it," the firefighter told NBC’s Today in an exclusive interview last month.Zoey’s family said they want to share her story with the hopes of Zoey’s birth parents seeing their little girl in a safe and loving home thanks to their brave decision. The inside of the Safe Haven Baby Box at the fire station in Ocala, Florida.
