Promises to keep
Almost three thousand years ago in the land of Egypt, the Pharaoh ordered the infantcide of all male childern of the Hebrew slaves in the kingdom. One desperate mother tenderly placed her infant son in a basket and hid him in the Nile to keep him safe from harm.

Watched over by his sister Miriam, the baby was discovered by the Pharaoh's daughter. When the princess decided to adopt the child, Miriam stepped forward and offered their mother's services as a wetnurse for the baby.

Through her courage and creativity, Miriam transformed a devestating situation - fostering hope and healing for the birthmother, the adoptive mother and the boy called Moses.

That same promise of hope is urgently needed by those facing the anguish of infertility and untenable pregnancy today.

Help us keep the promise.
