we're praying for you baby scarlette!

friends of ours welcomed their sweet bitty girl a little earlier than most. little miss scarlette vonne weighs in at a little less than two pounds. while most mamas are able to cuddle their bundles and complain about poopy diapers, kayla and jeff rejoice over the few moments they're able to touch their baby with just a single finger and shout praises over every small bowel movement-- that is no small feat in their daughter's life.

even before she was born, haven has been praying for her tiny friend. when we pull up kayla's blog each day to see any new updates, haven declares "there's scarlette!". i'm not sure why i feel so connected to kayla, maybe because of past infertility or our unique entrances into motherhood; BUT i do know it is God who compels our family to pray so fervently for scarlette and her parents. would you stop here to join us in praying for them? yes, you and yes, right now. :)

you can head over HERE to read kayla's fabulous blog and keep updated with her sweet scarlette. kayla, i wish i could be there to hug your neck and make you dinner. know that your whole family constantly fills our family's thoughts and God is good to use the most random things to prompt us to pray for your sweet girl. we entrust you to our Might God, the Prince of Peace, Wonderful Counselor, and Everlasting Father.

I've been praying...and following her blog for 2 years. I feel a connection too and pray God will get them through this and they will be able to take their baby home.:)

My daughter was born at 28 weeks and was 2lb 2oz. I understand how hard it is for preemie parents, and how awful it can be to spend the holiday season in the NICU. I am saying a prayer right now...Olivia Frances turned 2 on November 24 and is doing great and I am thankful everyday.
