CHILDREN OUR ULTIMATE INVESTMENT
The greatest gifts life has to
offer are sound health and good relationships--with ourselves, our associates,
our environment. Unfortunately both health and
relationships are often undermined when we are totally dependent and most
vulnerable: that is, during conception, pregnancy,
birth and the first five years of life. Consequently, the largest
portion of human suffering-- illness, loneliness, delinquency,
etc. would be greatly diminished if that period were lived in harmony and
love. The well-being of the world depends largely
on the quality of the relationship between parents or parent substitutes
and their children. If they were to live in a loving state
of consciousness, the benefit would be universal.

I love the work my friend John Walsh is doing and has done since that fateful
day his son Adam
was taken to his death...what a
bond now between these two humans...John and Adam Walsh. I
will always have the honor that I
met and spent some time with Mr. Walsh, and proud we carry
some of the same crossed to bare.
God Bless You John Walsh...

Project Cuddle No baby deserves to die before he or she has had the chance to live
Project Cuddle is the result of one woman's
crusade to help prevent infants from being
abandoned. Debbe Magnussen and her husband Dave
fostered over 30 drug-exposed
babies, while raising two biological children.
They eventually adopted five beautiful little
ones. Thus, Project Cuddle's crisis line was
formed from the living room of Debbe's
home, with the hope of ending baby abandonment.
