Prayer Request a couple of other families...

Through this journey I have been blessed to get to know other families on journeys similar yet very different from my own. Many of those familys I only "know" because they too have shared their journey via blog. A few of those families are in need of additional prayer and you all have been so supportive and have been such prayer warriors I thought I would ask you all to pray for these families:

Please pray for:
Baby Eva and her family. Eva has trisomy 18 and is due to be born on Monday. Please pray for her and for her family as they prepare to meet their baby girl!

Also pray for the family of Joshua Matthew Sams. This family is living on the other side of the world in New Zealand and they are such an amazing family with incredible hearts for God. Joshua was born with a severe neural tube defect and lived for 9 weeks and 4 days but was called home to Heaven on March 15. My heart is aching for this family as they experience the bittersweet nature of having a child go to Heaven. They are rejoicing for he is in heaven and is whole, but are sad because they miss him terribly.

Hi Kristy,

I have been praying for both of these families. One is still full of hope and the other is so crushing. You know how both of these families feel better than I could ever understand.
I hope your get-away from "HOLLAND" is a good break for you, wherever you land:) Still praying for you daily as you go through this valley of missing Asher so very much. All my love and prayers to you today dear friend.

Love, Laurie in Ca.

Thank you so much Kristy for the continuos thoughts and prayers! And even the offer of help! There is not a day that goes by that I do not think of you and your precious family. Someday I know we will meet. We live too close to not plan something. I think you're pretty close to Splash Lagoon which is a favorite of ours. We will definitely work something out...with hopes and dreams that Eva will be joining us! Love and prayers for you always! Chrissy
