Focus on the Family has partnered with Pastor Lee and is committed to equipping viewers with the tools they need to advocate for these precious children, whether through adoption, supporting an adoptive family, or raising awareness of the plight of orphans. Because in the end, building more “baby boxes” is not the answer. Rather, we must work toward a day when they are no longer necessary, when all human life is embraced for its inherent value and purpose.
Pastor Lee would be the first to agree: “I always pray that there will be no more abandoned babies in this country and no more in our baby box. That’s all I want.”
Pastor Lee told the South China Morning Post that he set up the Drop Box after hearing reports of babies being abandoned in the open air or public restrooms where they risked dying of hypothermia.
“Some teenagers give birth to babies in empty houses or in public toilets. They wrap them in old shirts or towels and bring them to us,” he said.
On one occasion, a young couple brought in a baby covered in dust. The father had been planning to bury it alive, he explained.
“When the father started shovelling earth over it, the mother could not bear it any more and rescued the baby,” he said.
