Were you one of the people who lost electricity on January 2nd? I know my home was without power for at least six hours.
Many of you told us you were not able to watch our New Year’s special, The Stork’s Nest, that night because you were without electricity. In answer to your requests, we will be re-airing the special next Friday night, January 23rd, from 8-10pm.
The Stork’s Nest is about a hospital in Kumamoto City that decided to do something to help single mothers or parents unable to raise their children who were desperate and considering abandoning their children rather than face the stigma of dishonor and shame from society.
The caring directors of the hospital converted part of the facility to accommodate people so they could anonymously deposit unwanted babies, knowing they’d be cared for. Response was overwhelming and soon mothers from across the country were coming to deposit babies at the hospital.
This drama tells the story of the creation of “Stork’s Nest” and depicts the lives of some of the mothers who came to use the “nest”.
