Heartfelt Prayers

I've recently been introduced, via blogs, to two families who could really use our prayers right now.

Jill is the mama of soon-to-be-born baby Joshua. Joshua has been diagnosed with Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome (HLHS) and Jill is scheduled to deliver her sweet baby boy next week. He will undergo his first heart surgery just a few days after his birth. Please stop by Jill's blog to let her and her husband know that you will be lifting up them and their precious little boy during this time of high anxiety and fear!

Amy will be delivering baby Ella tomorrow morning (Monday the 9th), via c-section, at 9:00 a.m. Ella has also been diagnosed with HLHS, but has some other complicating factors within the structure of her heart. She will, more than likely, go straight to the OR for a procedure right after birth, then have her first open heart surgery a few days later. I'm sure Amy and her husband would love to hear any words of encouragement, or just that you'll be praying for them as they enter into the events of tomorrow.

Heart moms and dads are instantly bonded and the stories of these innocent little babies stings me in a deep, personal way. I will be praying for both of these families throughout the following days, and I ask that you do the same.
