Description A modern interpretation of a universal experience
Caption "A birth is a new life. A new life is hope. A new life is wishing. A mother wishes for a new life, for a newborn baby to live long, to be happy, to be healthy, to live in peace without war. Birth is optimistic. But when God sent Adam and Eve from the Garden of Eden, he told Eve "With sorrow thou shalt bear children" (Genesis..)"
