Holding the Baby by MARTIN STANIFORTB
In these days of ' planned parenthood ' Kate and Roy take it for granted that they can arrange their child-bearing to suit their convenience and they are happily awaiting the birth of their first baby. When things turn out to be less straightforward than they hoped, Roy has a rational and convenient plan ready. But isn't this the time when instinctive, selfless mother-love must take over?
