Praying for Baby J

About a year and a half ago, in the midst of the festivities surrounding the twins' first Christmas, there is this post. Followed up by this short, but heartbreaking post. Though the road has been difficult, we found out not too long ago that they were joyfully expecting baby #2 in November!

Last night we received word that she went into early labor and their baby had to be delivered via emergency c-section at 26 weeks. Little Boy J is 1 lb. 13 oz., and healthy despite his early entry! Currently, mother and baby are at different hospitals (he was flown to a hospital more equipped to handle preemies that small), and they are looking at a 5-6 month NICU stay. I know they would appreciate your prayers for the long journey ahead - for strength & patience, for comfort & peace, for support & encouragement when they need it most. And we ask especially for prayers for little baby J - that he would continue in his good health as he grows bigger and stronger.

We will lift up that precious tiny baby and mother in this long road ahead. But praise God that he is healthy for that very tiny weight!!! He wants to make his place in this world!!! We'll be praying, Grandma

Thanks for enlisting your faithful readers to help, Kim. Rachel is doing great and the baby is as well. Just wanted to mention that they'll be calling him by his middle name, so maybe he should be Baby JG. :)

At the time, we didn't even know his middle name, but I have since discovered that he will be more Baby G instead of Baby J :) We will make the switch :)
