We treat a pregnancy like we treat a disease, like it’s a problem that needs to be solved instead of a natural process that’s been happening for millennia!
Being a lighthouse has many different connotations. You can be a beacon of hope in the fog of life’s challenges. You can be the steady light amongst the ever changing sea.

Be their beacon of hope during this time of turmoil.

Listen as Dr. Rubin lays out the problem and then offers a plan of action to reach the kids who need it the most.
