Luann Fretz of Chambersburg lay patiently on a gurney while registered diagnostic medical sonographer Lori Hammond ran an ultrasound wand over her stomach. Several women, who were observing the 4-D ultrasound demonstration, surrounded Fretz, who is 24 weeks' pregnant with her first child. They gasped as the baby's face came into view on the computer screen. The baby 'responded' by putting her arms in front of her face.

Organizations that know 'truth' need support To the editor: President Obama made it very clear he has an obligation to maintain abortion rights so “all daughters may fulfill their dreams.” This might backfire on him one day. You see, Malia and Sasha are obtaining a first-rate education in their private school. Hopefully, this means they will get an accurate scientific explanation of human reproduction.

Recently, I was anticipating a baby shower for my best friend from college who lives nearly two hours away. Her firstborn was due March 29, and the shower was March 5. In a surprise move, her tiny son made his appearance on March 1. He was born just after 9 p.m., healthy and weighing just less than 5 pounds. Mother and son were discharged from the hospital within 48 hours of the little man's arrival. I listened intently that night as my friend relayed her birth story on the phone.

katec@herald-mail.com WILLIAMSPORT - Last December, Melissa "Missi" and Matthew Dittman got the call they'd been waiting for. A baby boy born in Seoul, South Korea, would be theirs to adopt. Their prayers for a child were answered halfway around the world. They had not prayed alone. When the baby arrived at Dulles International Airport on June 21, more than a dozen people welcomed him. Among them were the pastor of St. Andrew Presbyterian Church in Williamsport, Mark Sandell; his wife, Annette; and their sons, 17-year-old twins Kevin and Brian, and 13-year-old Keith.
