A Whale of a Tale: Meet Kane

A Whale of a Tale: Meet Kane

Kane is a Blue Whale, a mammal belonging to the baleen whale family.  He comes from a very long line of mighty Blue Whales.   Weighing in at 190 tons, Kane is use to others fearing him.  But Kane is nothing to fear, for he has a loving and giving heart.  He can sense when there are troubles in the sea and is always looking to help.  He provides rides to those smaller than him, a wonderful hiding place to anyone scared, and uses his strength to move, lift, and help any animal in need. One day, the seas turned rough.  The waters became darker and sands began to churn.  The animals of the ocean knew to stay home, for a great storm was on the surface.  But Kane could not sleep.  Even through all of the underwater storm sounds, he heard something: something new.  He knew he was being called to help. Kane set out against the waves and rough seas, following the sound that was calling to him.  He followed it to the surface, where he saw a sailboat struggling in the storm.  The night sky was painted dark blue, with clouds covering the moon.  The nearest land could not be seen.  This boat was in trouble.  Kane heard the sound grow louder as he swam closer to the small boat.  He had never ventured this close to humans before, but the sound called to him.  Suddenly, he could see aboard the boat: Humans, two of them.  The sound grew louder, the sound of a heart beating, but it was not from the man or the woman.  The noise that had beckoned Kane was a baby’s heartbeat. These humans were growing a baby! And this tiny, unborn creature was in danger tonight.  There was a family aboard this vessel and they needed Kane’s help to find their home. Kane had never helped humans, but his heart knew what to do.  He gently nudged the boat over the waves, keeping it safe from the largest swells. The sound of the infant’s heartbeat kept Kane on his mission.  Slowly, throughout the night, he got them closer to land.  As the sun gently rose, and the seas began to calm, the humans saw Kane.  Tears filled their eyes, and they reached to touch this gentle giant who had saved their lives. The sound of the baby’s heart beating never left Kane.  He cherished it like the sweet sounds of rolling waves. The family aboard the sailboat soon delivered a healthy beautiful baby and brought her to the edge of the ocean to meet the one who saved her.  They would forever remember the stormy night, and the one who helped them to safety. 12483493_10208337380342939_1937529673_n Bring Kane with you to your next prenatal appointment and record your little one’s heartbeat.
