The Drop Box Will Touch Your Heart, Bring You to Tears

While watching The Drop Box, you might find yourself humming an old song you once learned in Sunday school:

“Jesus loves the little children, all the children of the world. Red and yellow, black and white, they are precious in His sight. Jesus loves the little children of the world.”

The second installment in Focus on the Family‘s new series, The Drop Box follows 2014’s Irreplacable in its exploration of culture, pain, and family. It is a powerful, heart-wrenching reminder of the love God can both command and inspire. And just like Christ’s birth, it all begins in a tiny, wooden box.

Just like success or fame or security is to other people,” shared Ivie in The Drop Box Book.The Drop Box is about South Korean Pastor Jong-rak Lee, who made it his life’s mission to save unwanted and abandoned babies. He created a “drop box” at his home so that troubled parents could leave their children without being seen. He would then care for the children himself.
