New Book – Hope in Turmoil

Alliance Ontario is pleased to offer the resource HOPE IN TURMOIL. This is a project of Morning Light Ministry and Alliance for Life Ontario to assist parents who have received a difficult or tragic pregnancy diagnosis.

We know that many parents are pressured into ending the life of their baby through induced abortion or early induction of labour when faced with a life-limiting or life-altering diagnosis.  HOPE IN TURMOIL was created to reveal the beauty and purpose of these babies and to provide much needed support to mothers and fathers to continue the pregnancy.

How wonderful that there now exists an exciting new resource for parents, grandparents, siblings, and professionals called Hope in Turmoil that shares how to care for patients and families with a challenging prenatal diagnosis! As one of the pioneers of Perinatal Hospice, I attest that this booklet provides much needed information on practical aspects of assistance to families in need of support. Families with life-limiting conditions or special needs share their experiences, their frustrations, and most of all, their joys. This booklet puts to rest the myths regarding early inductions for life-limiting conditions and children with significant special needs. The powerful message of Hope in Turmoil gives parents the courage to just be parents to their very special children. It is a necessary resource for families, pastors, priests, rabbis, families, medical professionals who deal with obstetrical patients, and hospice programs. It carries my unreserved endorsement!

Morning Light Ministry provides this resource that helps anxious parents to cope with difficult
or tragic prenatal diagnoses…This guide helps by providing a list of available resources that parents can access including existing agencies and sources of support. With the Hope in Turmoil Guide, parents will find the strength and encouragement they need as they welcome and love the child to whom with God’s grace they gave the gift of life. It truly does provide hope in difficult times.

+Terrence Prendergast, S.J. , Archbishop of Ottawa

Hope in Turmoil is a great service to the culture of life. It will inform and educate those who do not know the gift of a child with a difficult pre-natal diagnosis. More importantly, it will provide parents with the emotional, spiritual and practical support they need on their journey throughout their pregnancy and beyond. Each story is a unique testimony of accepting the gift of life amidst difficult circumstances and the triumph of love over fear. My hope is that this manual will become a widely known resource for all those involved in difficult pre-natal diagnoses.

– Mother Agnes Mary Donovan, Sisters of Life

Hope in Turmoil” is a courageous and faithful witness to the Church’s clear teaching that prohibits direct abortion – or any choice which discriminates against and denies the right to life of any of God’s children, no matter how weak or compromised they may be or how
short their precious life might be.

– Dr. Patricia Murphy, Assistant Professor of Moral Theology, St. Augustine’s Seminary, Toronto, Canada
