Aching

Tonight, the neice of one of my congregants is delivering her still-born baby. She has lost two babies at 20 weeks, also.
She is a very young woman, unmarried. She and her family do not have a church home. I am lined-up to do a funeral and on call this evening when she delivers.
I cannot imagine this grief.
Please pray for her and her family that they know whatever comfort they can receive.

I will pray for her. If she needs to talk to someone who understands, give her my email address. I am always available to other moms going through this grief.

Thank you, all.

Amy, thank you, especially, friend.

The little one has not arrived yet. We're going on 24 hours now. I'm praying for stamina and expedience. The family and, of course, the young woman are exhausted.

A very sad time, I am sure.

Oh April,
I will pray.

What a heartbreaking situation.

Hear our prayer.

I will pray that you will be given an extra dose of grace to make it thru the next few days.

Thank you, all. Baby arrived last night about 7 p.m. Mama is holding on. She has lots of family around her. She is feeling loved, thank God.

Thank you for your prayers.
