PostSubject: Just asking for some prayers...   Mon Jan 26, 2009 10:24 am

Tomorrow, my niece will be delivered at Brigham and Womens Hospital in Boston. About 5 months ago, my brother and his wife found out that they were having a baby girl. When they had the ultra sound, they noticed some irregularity with her heart. After further testing, the doctors determined that the left side of her heart was not developing which upon birth could mean she would need immediate heart surgery, a possible transplant, or she may not live longer than a week. This was obviously extremely heavy news to them but they had faith that she would be stronger than the doctors said she was.

Since the last tests, it has shown that the heart has developed a little further along than they expected and would not require surgery in the womb prior to birth. This was great news, but there are still many possibilities that right now are in the hands of the Lord.

I've prayed and prayed and prayed, and I have so much faith in God that He knows what is right and what should be. I believe that in the hands of God, human beings can overcome the impossible. I believe in miracles. I believe in this baby girl. '

Even if you are not religious, I just ask for a moment that you think positive thoughts in her direction. She is scheduled for delivery at 8:30 tomorrow morning. Prayers and positivity are more than welcome and needed. Thanks in advance and God bless you all...

Adam, I'll be praying for the health and comfort of all concerned, and of course wisdom, skill, and guidance for the doctors involved.

Your name is a reminder that God is merciful and delights in life. Be strong.

Prayers sent for all concerned:

And a woman who held a babe against her bosom said, "Speak to us of Children."

And he said:
Your children are not your children.
They are the sons and daughters of Life's longing for itself.
They come through you but not from you,
And though they are with you, yet they belong not to you.
You may give them your love but not your thoughts.
For they have their own thoughts.
You may house their bodies but not their souls,
For their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow, which you cannot visit, not even in your dreams.
You may strive to be like them, but seek not to make them like you.
For life goes not backward nor tarries with yesterday.
You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth.
The archer sees the mark upon the path of the infinite, and He bends you with His might that His arrows may go swift and far.
Let your bending in the archer's hand be for gladness;
For even as he loves the arrow that flies, so He loves also the bow that is stable.

From 'The Prophet' by Khalil Gibran

I cannot express in words the joy in my heart that I feel when I see this kind of support. I thank each and every one of you for the kind words.

Kilted1, that excerpt brought tears to my eyes, it is truly wonderful.

Thank you all for your thoughts and prayers...this community is beyond amazing. I am blessed to be a part of it. God bless you all!

I'm passing on a favorite work my Mother gave me when I 'came of age' at 13 'The Prophet' by Khalil Gibran has been a mainstay next to The Holy Bible all of my life. I've found it to be full of wisdom and comfort ever since, it covers anything we as human beings experience. Khalil Gibran has been an inspiration to millions and his works are translated into many languages.

I am glad he has found a new reader!

At 9:15 am yesterday morning, God graced our family with a newborn baby girl. At 7lbs 5oz she was born with no complications and was screaming and crying like a healthy baby should. She spent a good part of the day being tested and monitored for her heart issues and it looks like surgery will be on the horizon but we are taking it day by day. She went nameless all day until midnight when she was named Ella Diane Fitzgerald. : )

I can't thank you all enough for the thoughts and prayers. God was there with us yesterday and I felt it in every ounce of my heart. I'll update with a picture once I get them on my computer.

Thank you all and God bless...

Great news...never forget that God answers prayers (remember that thing about "wherever two or more are gathered together...")

I think that can apply to an internet forum community.
