ITTY BITTY ABIGAIL


We have had many babies born in our congregation
this spring and most of them have arrived safe and
sound. We do have one little girl that needs prayers.
Abigail Faith is a preemie baby, weighing 2lbs, 7oz
at birth. The family is in Seattle and it looks like
she will be in the hospital for many weeks before 
she can come back home.

Besides the obvious health issues I am certain
this is creating a tremendous financial hardship
for them---being out of state and not working,
not to mention the thousands of $$$ in medical
bills that are piling up every hour. I don't know
their insurance status, but it costs approx.
$20,000 just to be Medivaced from here
to Seattle and a lot of insurance companies
will not cover that cost in full (gee--what
a shocker that one is)

Here is an excerpt sent out by our church:
C. M. was medivaced a few weeks ago in a health crisis and her little baby was taken by emergency c-section many weeks early to save mommie and baby. As Abigail appeared fairly developed for a premature baby, the drs. felt this procedure was safest. Therefore we have a little 2# baby girl that needs our prayers along with her mommy.


Prayers are very much appreciated for 
this neat family!

See if you can get the family connected with the Ronald McDonald house. I know from experience they have one near the Children's Hospital in Seattle. And there are other organizations that are set up to help families with finances and other needs in this situation. God bless.

for a baby that tiny she looks good!
Tricia is right they need to get plugged in. A Caring Bridge site is a good way too to get connected and get help.
