Regardless of circumstances, every baby is a little miracle

Published on

We have three daughters, one daughter-in-law, one son, and two sons-in-law, and have been fortunate to have five grandchildren. Despite the fact that our youngest grandchild has not yet reached the age of toilet training, I rarely observe advertisements for Pampers, Huggies, or Luvs on television. When I do see such advertisements, they fail to elicit any response from me.

However, from my previous experience of analysing numerous Pampers advertisements, it is evident that they are frequently of an exceptional standard. The advertisements serve to reinforce the significance of infants and to remind parents of their obligation to celebrate, support, and protect each child. The advertisements do not portray only those babies who are “wanted” or “perfect.” Rather, they celebrate the diversity of babies, including those who are not “wanted” or “perfect.”

Given that these commercials frequently commence with sonograms, pro-lifers perceive this sentiment as applicable not only to infants at the time of birth, but also to the initial stages of the infant’s development.

If you were to view the film “For Every Little Miracle,” I would venture to suggest that you would, as I did, disseminate the link to a considerable number of your family and friends.

The overarching point they make is that circumstances do not matter. The circumstances of the babies in question are not specified, and the advertisement does not claim that all circumstances are ideal. However, the babies are presented as a gift, a treasure, to be honoured, protected and (to use the author’s own words) to be marvelled at.

The initial question posed in the phrase “For every little miracle,” “whether he’s planned… or not,” is of paramount importance.


The image begins with a close-up of a young woman’s head, dressed in a wedding dress. This is followed by a full-length view of the woman’s pregnant profile.

This is a succinct and direct approach. It is often overlooked that infants are not responsible for the circumstances of their own conception. This is a matter of collective responsibility.

Furthermore, the advertisement, in my estimation, conveys the unambiguous message that there is but one option: to celebrate, support, and protect this “little miracle.”

There are numerous other factors to consider, including whether the infant has special needs or a high number of needs, whether they have been adopted, whether they arrived three months early or ten years late, whether they are biracial or multicultural, and whether their family lives nearby or far away.

In all these circumstances—the planned and the optimal, or the unplanned and the suboptimal—this infant is one of us, a miracle to whom we have the strongest obligation on the face of the planet: to protect and nurture our own flesh and blood.

The advertisement is of a duration of one minute and two seconds. It is respectfully requested that you take the time to view the video entitled “For every little miracle” (www.youtube.com/watch?v=6gZRRQgusXU).
