Bad, Children, and Facebook: BABY BOX OK no Without the baby-box, these babies would die. <p><a class="tumblr_blog" href="http://allthingshyper.tumblr.com/post/51705607062/afternoonsnoozebutton-a-pastor-in-seoul-south">allthingshyper</a>:</p> <blockquote> <p><a class="tumblr_blog" href="http://afternoonsnoozebutton.com/post/51702293599/a-pastor-in-seoul-south-korea-has-created-a-baby">afternoonsnoozebutton</a>:</p> <blockquote> <p><strong>A pastor in Seoul, South Korea has created a “baby box” for people so that people who would otherwise abandon or kill their newborns can leave them somewhere safe instead.</strong> The box has a light, a towel lining, and a bell rings as soon as a baby is placed in it so the pastor, his wife, or one of his staff can come and get it right away.</p> <p><span>Lee Jong-rak</span> started the box in 2009, and has welcomed all babies, often disabled or the children of single mothers, that have been placed in the box since. The babies are given a loving home, food, and shelter in his orphanage. Currently, an average of 17-18 babies are placed in the box every month. </p> <p>One mother who had considered poisoning her baby before she heard about the Baby Box left her baby in the box with a letter pinned to his clothing that read: </p> <blockquote> <p><span>‘My baby! Mom is so sorry.</span><br/><span>I am so sorry to make this decision.</span><br/><span>My son! I hope you to meet great parents,</span><br/><span>And I am very very sorry.</span><br/><span>I don’t deserve to say a word.</span><br/><span>sorry, sorry, and I love you my son.</span><br/><span>Mom loves you more than anything else.</span><br/><span>I leave you here because I don’t know who your father is.</span><br/><span>I used to think about something bad but I guess this box is safer for you.</span><br/><span>That’s why I decided to leave you here.</span><br/><span>My son, Please forgive me.’</span><br/><br/><span>- ‘A single mother’s tearful letter’</span></p> </blockquote> <p><span>Lee Jong-rak is the subject of a documentary called “The Drop Box”, which I haven’t seen - but I can recommend this 13 minute Dateline <a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&amp;v=ExyeyrcFPFM">video</a>. You can find the Facebook page for the BabyBox <a href="https://www.facebook.com/babyboxkorea">here</a>.</span></p> </blockquote> <p>GIVE THIS MAN A FUCKING AWARD</p> </blockquote>
