I am asking for prayer for a family that I know.. This baby girl was admitted to the hospital about a month and a half ago for breathing issues and not growing. At the time she was just 8 weeks old. Little did this family know they would never return home with their sweet girl.
They had no idea the ups and downs she would encounter and the test of their own courage and strength. This little girl was diagnosed after much testing with a rare, incurable disorder. This disorder was going to take her life eventually, in a year or two. Little did they know the RAPID rate this monster was taking over her body, especially her brain. She has rapidly lost the ability to swallow and now struggles to breath. The doctors have asked these parents if they wanted to continue support or let her go, knowing she will never grow to talk, to walk or to eat.
They have chosen to release her and put aside their own wants to keep her here, safe with them. The strength these parents show is beyond words. I am not there in their private moments, but they see the bigger picture, that their baby has done the job Jesus intended her to do. How often do we sit back and see that so clearly?
I am asking for prayer for this devastated family, that they may see God's purpose for their baby's short yet powerful life. I pray for the grandma's and grandpa's that not only are suffering but have to watch their children suffer as they let their baby girl of 14 weeks go.
Please help me lift up this family!
