Florida firefighter adopts baby left in safe haven box
OCALA, Fla. - In a heartwarming tale of compassion, a Florida firefighter has opened his heart and home to a newborn baby girl he discovered in the station’s Safe Haven drop box in December. According to the Ocala Fire and Rescue Station in Florida, the firefighter heard the alarm and discovered the baby inside the state’s first Safe Haven Baby Box (SHBB) – a device that legally permits a mother in crisis to safely, securely, and anonymously surrender a newborn who cannot be cared for. Both he and his wife had reportedly been trying for a child for years, according to FOX News Digital. When the baby was sent to the local hospital for evaluation, the firefighter sent a special note explaining his situation and described the couple’s desire and clearances to adopt through the state. (Credit: Zoey's parents, FOX News Digital, Ocala Fire Rescue) After a few long and stressful days, Zoey was in her new loving home with the firefighter and wife – her new parents. "It’s a gift from God, that’s all it is. 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.

Russian defense minister makes 1st public appearance since mercenary revolt
mercenary uprising demanded his ouster, inspecting troops in Ukraine in a video released Monday aimed at projecting a sense of order after the country’s most serious political crisis in decades.But uncertainty still swirled about his fate, that of rebellion leader Yevgeny Prigozhin and his private army, the impact on the war in Ukraine and even the political future of President Vladimir Putin.A feud between Wagner Group leader Prigozhin and Russia's military brass that has festered throughout the war erupted into a mutiny that saw the mercenaries leave Ukraine to seize a military headquarters in a southern Russian city and march seemingly unopposed on Moscow, before turning around after less than 24 hours on Saturday.The Kremlin said it had made a deal that Prigozhin will move to Belarus and receive an amnesty, along with his soldiers. Yet on Monday, Russian media reported that a criminal probe against him continued, and his whereabouts were unknown.The video of Shoigu — the first of him shown since the uprising that demanded his ouster — came as Russian media speculated that he and other top military leaders have lost Putin’s confidence and could be replaced.Shoigu was shown in the Defense Ministry video in a helicopter and then meeting with officers at a military headquarters in Ukraine.

Debt ceiling: House OKs bill to avoid default, sends Biden-McCarthy deal to Senate
WASHINGTON - Veering away from a default crisis, the House approved a debt ceiling and budget cuts package late Wednesday, as President Joe Biden and Speaker Kevin McCarthy assembled a bipartisan coalition of centrist Democrats and Republicans against fierce conservative blowback and progressive dissent.The hard-fought deal pleased few, but lawmakers assessed it was better than the alternative — a devastating economic upheaval if Congress failed to act. Tensions ran high throughout the day as hard-right Republicans refused the deal, while Democrats said "extremist" GOP views were risking a debt default as soon as next week.With the House vote of 314-117, the bill now heads to the Senate with passage expected by week's end.McCarthy insisted his party was working to "give America hope" as he launched into a late evening speech extolling the bill's budget cuts, which he said were needed to curb Washington's "runaway spending."But amid discontent from Republicans who said the spending restrictions did not go far enough, McCarthy said it is only a "first step."Earlier, Biden expressed optimism that the agreement he negotiated with McCarthy to lift the nation's borrowing limit would pass the chamber and avoid an economically disastrous default on America's debts.The president departed Washington for Colorado, where he is scheduled to deliver the commencement address Thursday at the U.S.
