There were many children who spent their days running and playing together in the garden. The Keeper of The Garden, also known as Father, knew all of his children who lived there.

Father explained many things to them and expressed his deep desire for them to return to live with Him again. All they had to do was remember Him and follow his plan and the time would come for them to return again. Suddenly, they all quieted as they had the same thought (these friends were so close they often talked that way.) Father understood and was quick to reassure them that the one left behind would soon follow. This made the three friends very happy.

Then, the first mother stepped forward, "I will do this," she said with quiet dignity. The Father lovingly took her hand in His and warned, "I want you to understand that this experience will be very difficult. You will need to be courageous and selfless. It will require sacrifices. There will be pain and discomfort. You will devote nearly a year of your life to this purpose. To bring this life to light means going to the very brink of mortality. Yet, you shall have the honor of giving life in partnership with the Creator who is the source of all life. You will know what it is to feel the stirrings of that life within you. Finally, you shall feel joy as you are privileged to share the gift of life." The sister looked deep into the eyes of her two friends. A feeling of peace swept over her as she said, "Father, I would be honored to play this
