A Request for Prayer

Hi everyone~

Everything is going great here...really really great. We are enjoying our littlest one in a way only possible because of Jacob.

I come to you for prayer for a family I was just introduced to. A friend of my sister goes to church with a sweet couple who has received a T18 diagnosis for their little baby girl 15 weeks in her mama's womb. Her T18 conditions are severe and the couple has not been given much hope of a live birth. I am in the process of getting connected with the mother and would covet your prayers for the baby girl, for the mama and daddy, and for guidance in how Jacob can be used in their lives. I am always so thankful for the opportunity to be used, but the flip side is that there is another family with broken hearts.

All you who understand because you have walked this road of loss, please pray for this couple with specifics of what you know as only a parent of loss knows. Those who have not lost, pray with the awe of how you have no clue what it would be like to lose your child and the sheer fear of every having to experience it.

I will do my best to keep you updated if the Lord clears the way for me to be used in their lives.....but just be in prayer.

Thank you! Karen

You can count on me to pray for this sweet baby and her family Karen. I have not suffered the loss as you have, but I will pray them through as I have prayed you and many others through down this T18 road. Asking God to use you and Jacob in a mighty way here. Love you.

Love and Hugs, Laurie

If this is the sister from Rochester let me know if she would like to get together with me.

Thank goodness for mothers like you that can help her in so many ways. Jacob will once again be a shining light for another family. Lots of love to you and the family in so much pain right now.

Will be praying. Thanks for making us aware. God bless you for being willing to walk this road with them.

On a lighter note, we would love some more pictures when you have some time! ;)

Ask and it is done...praying for that which I do not know but fear and dread the thought of.

May you continue to know God's blessings through HIS use of you, your family, and most impoartantly your darling Jacob...
