From a friend:
Some of you may be familiar with the concept of a “drop box” for unwanted babies. As an alternative to aborting a baby, some places have developed a system of drop boxes, where a baby can be left, with the assurance that someone will take the child and care for him/her.
These drop boxes are usually in a hospital, or other safe institution, where a special door is devised with a large enough opening into which a baby can be placed safely and deposited inside a warm shelter. An employee is notified immediately by a buzzer to go and gather the child. The process is anonymous, so the mom need not fear repercussions. Instead of aborting the baby, the child can be brought to full term, and then discreetly placed into the care of someone who is willing to raise the little one.
A documentary called “The Drop Box” is in Ottawa during the first week in March. It’s about such a project in a South Korean orphanage. It is a wonderful story of love.
