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. 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.
Lee Jong-rak 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.
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:
‘My baby! Mom is so sorry.
I am so sorry to make this decision.
My son! I hope you to meet great parents,
And I am very very sorry.
I don’t deserve to say a word.
sorry, sorry, and I love you my son.
Mom loves you more than anything else.
I leave you here because I don’t know who your father is.
I used to think about something bad but I guess this box is safer for you.
That’s why I decided to leave you here.
My son, Please forgive me.’

Give this man all the praise you’d heap on some white dude who would take overcooked rice to feed starving children. And all the funding too.
THIS is, what a Baby of today FIRST ever sees of its mother !
And THEN they judge their Children as “autist” and “having ADH-disorder” !
babies are naturally able to swim hello they just spent nine moths in amiotic fluid this is instinctive so no, parent is not shitty, parent is re-enforcing baby’s natural instinctive behaviour.
parent is good for doing this because parent is basically saying “yes the behaviours you were born with are great!”
Yup, if babies are ‘taught’ (allowed) to swim before they are six weeks old, they never lose the instincts they were born with that lets them hold their head above water and hold their breath when they need to. SCIENCE, man.
What’s really cool is, humans are the only primates known to have this instinct at birth. Other ape babies would just freak out and drown. So I don’t think it comes from being in amniotic fluid for 9 months (since it’s not like they have room to actually swim in there). It’s been speculated that humans evolved in the ocean at some point, which is a really cool theory that I recommend checking out.
Also, SWIMMING BABY IS ADORABLE.
…also wenn das Kind dann AUCH noch nen Iro hat, :-S ….dann glaub ich auch an Survival of the UNfittest ! ;-)
Niger, 2009: Three-month-old Abdoulrachid laughs outside his home in Maradi Region. He is exclusively breastfed, thanks to a UNICEF-supported programme that encourages healthy family practices. The Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC) celebrated its 20th anniversary on 20 November 2009. The CRC is the most endorsed human rights treaty in the world, expressing in international law the rights due every child. Article 24 of the Convention recognizes the right of the child to the “highest attainable standard of health,” including health care and nutritious foods.
lol, the baby’s face..
