We met when he was 15 and I remember looking at him and thinking he was offensively attractive. And it’s just gotten worse from there.
open up to me, you can have all my love
just open up to me and if you’ll promise me
you’ll open up and learn how to trust again
i can do so much more than him
open up and let me in
There’s no way
That any other girl
Could do the things you do
If only I had known
I’d never let you go away
And do them things to you
But now my baby’s grown
And I got another girl
She ain’t you
Girl you know
She ain’t you girl
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 A FUCKING AWARD
Or even better than an award: more funding.
