Discussion Questions

  1. Whit and Eugene decided to give up their tour of Korea to help Pastor Rhee because they considered the children more important than their tour. How often have you placed others' needs before yourself?
  2. Do you have friends or classmates who were adopted? If so, what have you learned about adoption from knowing and talking to them?
  3. How did it feel to hear Pastor Rhee say that hundreds of babies are abandoned on the streets of Seoul every year?
  4. Discuss reasons a young mother might feel the need to abandon her baby. Then ask, “Which of those challenges is too big for God to help a person overcome?” Read Jeremiah 32:27.
  5. Each of you take a moment to write down three words to describe Pastor Rhee. When everyone’s finished, share yours and why you chose them.
  6. Sun Ji-hun argued that Pastor Rhee’s drop box was actually encouraging mothers to surrender their babies. What do you think of that?
  7. Imagine if your family adopted a child—maybe even one with special needs. In your world, what sorts of blessings or challenges might you expect?
  8. After working hard to build the drop box, Pastor Lee prayed that it would never be used. Why?
  9. How do you think God feels about children with disabilities?
  10. Do you feel like a masterpiece? Read Ephesians 2:10. What good works has the Lord given you to do?
  11. How can you support a family that has chosen to adopt?
