Special prayer request: Kenzie & baby Faith

On the way home from church tonight I received a text from Kenzie. After a doctor's appt. today, she was admitted into the hospital because she was dilated and in preterm labor at 26 weeks. Kenzie and Dusty are expecting their precious little girl, Faith Clare Stanfield, in December. Right now they are attempting to stop the contractions with magnesium sulfate for at least the next 48 hours and then Kenzie will be on bedrest.

I am sure Kenzie is scared, as any mother would be, and yet I also know that Kenzie's faith and trust in our Lord has never wavered. What a testimony she has been through Maddox's sweet life and through this pregnancy with Faith Clare. Kenzie has become one of my dearest friends this past year. We've laughed together, cried together and prayed together while on this Trisomy 18 journey so it's really hard to be here in Florida when I want to be there in Texas beside her, holding her hand and praying with her. But what I can do is pray for her from a distance. I come here tonight with a heavy heart for my precious friend.

Please pray for Kenzie, baby Faith, her husband Dusty and their son Deacon tonight and in the days ahead. Kenzie's blog is located on the side of my lists under Trisomy 18 journeys, Maddox Donald Stanfield. Please visit their blog and let them know you are praying for them.

Kenzie used this verse for Faith Clare on June 7th: "I have prayed for this child and the Lord has granted me what I asked of Him." 1 Samuel 1:27

Hi,

A friend forwarded your website to me because I have a little girl, Abby, who has Trisomy 18. I read the first entry and thought that if Kenzie by chance lives in Austin, I could possibly help her in some way! Thank you so much! Wendy

I wanted to thank you for reaching out to other moms that are going down the road of Trisomy 18. A little over a week ago you posted to the blog of a friend of mine who has a now one month old daughter, Molly, with Trisomy 18. I've been thinking about you and your family ever since. It is so nice to know that there is a network of moms wanting to reach out and help other moms on such a bitter sweet journey. I will be praying for baby Faith.
