Special prayer request: The Webb family

As I have mentioned before, when Trayc and I first started out on this Trisomy 18 road in August we felt so alone because we did not know anything about T-18 nor did we know anyone going through this. Since that time the Lord has brought so many sweet Christian girls into my life, via the Internet. A few months ago I met a girl named Ashley, who is pregnant with a precious little girl named Faith Ann, who was also diagnosed with Trisomy 18. I would ask that you please join me in prayer for Ashley, her husband Adam, and their two daughters Brooke and Hannah as they go to the hospital today. Please specifically pray that Faith Ann will be born alive, that her heart rate will remain strong, that she will not be in distress and that Ashley and her family will be able to share some very precious moments with Faith Ann.

******UPDATE*******

Faith Ann
was born at 12:12 pm. She weighed 4 lb. 10 oz and is 18 inches long. She is alive and bright-eyed. Please pray for this family as they enjoy precious time with their new little girl.

******UPDATE*******

Faith Ann
passed away at 5:32 pm, she is now in the arms of Jesus!!!!! Oh my heart just breaks for this family this evening as I know what they are feeling. Please continue to pray for the Webb family in the days and weeks again. For further information please check their blog "Faith Ann Webb" (their link is located under our family picture: Trisomy 18: Journeys of Love)


James 5:16 says: "Confess your faults to one another and pray for one another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man (friend) availeth much."

Praying for them during this time of great loss for them. I am also praying for you Yvette and asking God to cover you with His peace and love during this time for you. I am learning through all of you special moms that this is a long journey to go through. I am with you in my heart and prayers.

Love and Hugs, Laurie in Ca.

Just wanting you to know that I am praying for you today. I know there are certain days that are tougher and today being the 27th may be one of them. You are never alone! I am praying and loving you!

OH...That precious little face. I've always loved Tristan's kiss-y lips face but tonight when I clicked on your blog to "check on" you guys I had an incredible desire to kiss him back right through the computer screen. Thank you GOD for making Tristan SO cute.
Thank you for the time you gave Tristan here on earth. I pray that you will give him love and kisses tonight from those who love him.

we will certainly be praying for this sweet family.
Also, SO glad you could come out with us last week! I don't have your email address though. When you get a second, would you mind sending it to me? That way I can get your on our email list for Wednesday morning coffee :)

Hey Yvette!

I just wanted you to know I was thinking of you guys this morning! I just love clicking on this blog and seeing Tristan's beautiful face at the top! Thank you for sharing him! Somedays I think the only thing that gets me through is knowing there are others out there who truly understand my deep hurt! I am sorry that you have been through the experience that causes that deep hurt, but am so thankful to have new friends who do undersand...

I am not even sure any of that made sense! :-) I have a tendancy to ramble!

Just know I love you and am praying for you!

Love,
Kristy
