Isiah's Promise - A Resource for Parents

As this week is the anniversary of Roe v Wade, I bring you a little known resource in the Archdiocese of Washington (and others).

This resource is called Isiah's Promise.

To learn more about them, here is their open letter to all (taken from their website):

Dear Friend,

We are a group of parents who knew early in our pregnancies that our babies had severe or fatal birth defects. Each of us, for various reasons, continued the pregnancy. It's a difficult and very personal decision.

We know the devastation, confusion, heartbreak and loneliness. We can't change your circumstances or make decisions for you. But we can offer support, friendship and experience.

Contacting us can be the most difficult thing to do at this time, we know. If you'd like to contact us, please e-mail your phone number to It's not so scary when you realize you're not alone.

Here is story about this organization and the founders in The Washington Times.

NB: It seems that they were recognized this past Sunday by the Archdiocese of Washington for their work, at a get together of pro-life groups.
