Prayer for Baby: Dear little baby H - seeing you twice in the last two weeks has been amazing. Even though we are not sure what your future holds, we know that God made you perfect just the way you are and you are already teaching us some important parenting lessons! We pray every day, throughout the day, for you and the life ahead of you. We cannot wait to meet you and know you are already a very special child. God has blessed us with you in more ways than we could have imagined, and you're only 21.5 weeks along! You are truly a miracle child and a blessing through and through. We love you with our whole hearts. Love, Mommy and Daddy


  1. Oh goodness! Will say a prayer for baby's health! And yours too. Hope everything is okay. God is in control! Continue to trust in Him!

  2. Praying for baby's health. I hope things are developing smoothly.
