‘The Drop Box’ brings reality of Korea’s abandon children to light

Brian Ivie’s documentary The Drop Box is an emotional rollercoaster with the heart wrenching reality of abandoned children in South Korea offset against the inspiring tale of Pastor Lee Jong-rak’s “baby box” and adoption of disabled children.

Millions of children are abandoned at birth around the world every year and the documentary highlights the failure of society to cut through red tape and bureaucracy to find homes of these children.

Jusarang (God’s Love) Community Church in Seoul, South Korea is indeed a bright spot in the world as Pastor Lee and a few volunteers work to care for these disabled children and help find homes for the abandoned newborns through their “baby box.”

Pastor Lee Jong-rak in documentary The Drop BoxOnce a day the bell rings, the film reveals as the math is done, and the challenge is made: “Do these unwanted children’s lives matter?”

Pastor Lee has adopted his fair share and his son is featured in the film, working for the mission. While the film is set in South Korea, our minds race and wonder about the circustances in our own neighborhood, county or state.

The journey is truly compelling and needs to be a must see for the life-changing reality check. Discussion afterwards, raises awareness of adoption support groups – check it out.

The Drop Box receives 4 1/2 out of 5 stars
