Incredible embroidered ultrasound allows blind father to ‘see’ preborn son

by Administrator

For most expectant parents, the first glimpses of their baby through ultrasound photos are joyful and exciting — a chance for early bonding with their preborn baby, and with each other. 

Expectant father Nathan Edge of Manchester, England, didn’t think he would get to experience ‘seeing’ his preborn baby. The 26-year-old has been visually impaired since the age of seven, and completely lost his eyesight at the age of 18 after two failed operations. After his baby’s  initial 12-week ultrasound, he tried to picture what his baby looked like based on others’ descriptions. He told TODAY Parents, “Being blind rarely ever gets me down — I’ve come to terms with it very well — but suddenly it hit me, ‘I’ll never be able to see this scan.’”

Before God, differences in rank, race, beauty, intelligence, humor, talent, health, and everything else the world values fade in comparison to the equal dignity inherent in each human being.

Pope: Violence against women displays cowardice, degrades all of humanity

Pope: Violence against women displays cowardice, degrades all of humanity

by Administrator

VATICAN CITY (CNS) — Abuses and violence against women are “acts of cowardice and a degradation of all humanity,” Pope Francis said.

“We must not look the other way. Let us pray for women who are victims of violence, that they may be protected by society and have their sufferings considered and heeded by all,” he said.

The pope’s remarks were part of a video message released by the Pope’s Worldwide Prayer Network as part of his prayer intention for the month of February.

Titled, “For women who are victims of violence,” the pope’s prayer intention decries the various kinds of violence millions of women suffer daily: “psychological violence, verbal violence, physical violence, sexual violence.”

Teen abandoned as baby in China advocates for safe haven baby boxes

Teen abandoned as baby in China advocates for safe haven baby boxes

by Administrator

Safe Haven baby boxes have already saved countless lives, and Isabella Lamkin, a teenager from Louisville, Kentucky, wants to make sure they save lives in her state. 

These baby boxes are especially dear to Isabella’s heart, as she herself was abandoned as an infant in China. “This organization is important to me, because I want these little babies […] to be able to have a chance, to have a family that can love them, the way my family loves me,” she wrote in her Change.org petition

Under Safe Haven Baby laws, or “Baby Moses” laws, a baby may be safely, legally, and anonymously handed over to specified locations — mostly first responders — within a certain number of days or months from birth.

Home run king Hank Aaron overcame racism to excel on and off the field

Home run king Hank Aaron overcame racism to excel on and off the field

by Administrator

WASHINGTON (CNS) — Hank Aaron, who was baseball’s home run king for 33 years, overcame racism to make his mark in the game he loved. Aaron died Jan. 22 at age 86.

Aaron, who became a Catholic while playing for the Milwaukee Braves, joined the Baptist faith later in life.

He never hit 50 home runs in a season, much less 60 or even 70 as other sluggers did; in his best season, he knocked 47 homers out of the park in 1971, when he was 37 years old. But it was his consistency that allowed him to amass 755 round-trippers over 23 seasons playing for the Milwaukee and Atlanta Braves, and — after he had set the record — back to Milwaukee to play for the Brewers.
