pray it forward...

Hi Friends (:

Evie and Lyla have had a good weekend, I am feeling much more at peace with surgery than in my last post. And they are both healthy, Evie's cold is almost completely gone (: Thank you for praying for us, I am feeling the downpour of blessings!
I know there are other bloggers out there who have passed on our story and asked their readers to pray for us, and I would like to pass that on today.

I have two friends who are having especially hard weekends, and I'd like to ask you to pray for them.
- My friend Ashley found out her son had Trisomy 13 and an abdominal wall defect about half way through her pregnancy. She and her husband Keith decided to continue the pregnancy, and Ethan was born an angel on Tuesday. His memorial service was yesterday, and I can't explain the heartache I felt as Ashley and Keith grieved the loss of their son.
- My friend Lindsey's daughter was born a year ago today, with a heart abnormality called hypoplastic left heart. She fought through surgery and weeks in the NICU and got to spend some time at home with her family, but passed away in early September of last year.

If you could pray for Ashley and Keith... Lindsey, Ian, and Evie their older daughter this is an especially hard weekend for them all. Although they both know their children are celebrating in Heaven with perfect bodies, it is still so unbelievably hard for them here, waiting to hold them again.

Thanks friends, Loving you, and praying with you (:
