“The world was never changed or transformed by politicians, or for that matter, by scientists. The mothers of the world hold the keys. . . .”–from the Foreword
As she eagerly awaited the birth of her first child, Mallika Chopra began to craft a unique gift that would express her profound loving commitment to the baby growing inside of her.
100 Promises to My Baby is that gift–one that reflects her deep awareness of the sacred responsibilities of parenthood. Here the author shares the vows she made to help her child–and all children–grow up feeling cherished and secure, look at the world with wonder and curiosity, and learn spiritual values that enrich life and contribute to making the world a better place. Accompanying the 100 promises are short essays, reflections, poems, and stories that have inspired the author throughout her life–and that will inspire readers to think about their own lives, values, and beliefs, and what they would like to pass on to their children.
