For those who struggle with fertility issues, here's Tiger's Hope

So it's been a while, but here I find myself on another crazy project! Or should I say it's crazy that some humble homeschool mom is involved, but God calls and I follow, so...

This is an AWESOME project - a movie about a couple in a fertility crisis - a couple who followed the fashionable ways of the world and are now in a crisis as these ways left them empty, disconnected, and confused. Until Tiger finds Hope.

This is a beautiful prolife story of true love and God's grace, meant to educate and inform a society that is so desperate for Truth and Light in the Darkness. Please help if you can! Especially with your prayers!


TIGER'S HOPE will be a high-definition 30-min television drama, that will also be made available on DVD. Through the power of story, the project will give an accurate picture of the state of both in vitro technology and its effects on children, the mother/egg donor and families. The cultural ramifications brought into being by separating the conception of children from the marital act will be explored and explained in light of the Church's long held understanding of both marriage and the dignity of each human being.

Rather than a documentary or didactic presentation, the dramatic story treatment was selected in order to increase the project's accessibility to a wider audience, and to engage them on a personal and emotional level. The overriding purpose of the film is not only to present the reality of in vitro technology but to raise the necessary questions which the whole field of egg harvesting and fertilization in a petri dish have created. The film is meant to educate all Christians, but especially Catholics, lay and cleric, and to change the perspective of any thinking person who takes our common humanity serious.

Distribution of the final project will be coordinated by the Diocese of Lansing, and Our Sunday Visitor. Nineveh's Crossing, a sister company of SWC Films, will coordinate television distribution to various Catholic and Protestant television networks around the world, where they have multiple projects already airing.

Seed funding for the project was provided by Our Sunday Visitor to the Diocese of Lansing, under the guidance of Most Rev. Earl Boyea. Rory Hoipkemier, Director of the diocese's Life Justice Office is the project manger and co-executive producer. Project development funding is being provided by co-executive producer, Stan Williams, through his production company, SWC Films. Tax deductible completion funds and gifts-in-kind are being sought through the Diocese of Lansing. See Contributions to the Production Fund.

Let's get the word out! By the way, Dr. Ray Guarendi plays the part of the priest!
