The Baby Box

When I worked at an orphanage in Johannesburg, South Africa. We had a baby box and I remember when baby Precious was dropped off.  He was so weak and so sickly, but the orphanage was able to feed and care for him and help turn his little life around.  It was a special time. T hese baby boxes are real and are really helping out.  What was happening in Jo-burg was that moms were leaving their babies in ditches, in trash cans and even throwing them out the window of 2 story buildings.  It was a sad sad story, but when the Baby Box was installed, mothers felt they had a safe place to leave their babies.  Some moms were even able to get jobs and come back and reclaim their babies.  I support this idea entirely and maybe one day, will get the privilege of bringing into our family one of these precious babies.  Here is a great video about the baby box is from Baby Box. I  believe this baby box is from a Pastor in Asia.
