Moses survives

Why was baby Moses saved when other baby Hebrews were being systematically drowned in the Nile? And why did Pharaoh allow his daughter to adopt a Hebrew baby, while he was slaughtering the others? Egyptian history tells of a pharaoh who had no son, only a daughter. She in turn was childless. Perhaps she was at the age of barrenness, and was desperate for a boy. Perhaps under these circumstances her dad granted her request. Nefure fits the bill. She later became queen Hatshepsut. Her adopted son had the Egyptian name Senmut. This was Moses. Moses was heir to the throne! This all changes when he kills the Egyptian foreman and has to flee the court to the land of Midian.
