HUGE Prayer Request

This might not be something that I should blog but it's something that is important to me and it needs a LOT of prayers! My sister, Kim, & her husband, John, are expecting their first baby this September. It's a boy named William. The poor little guy has skeletal dysplasia and a club foot. He would be a very small dwarf. Apparently his organs are all perfectly formed and perfectly sized but his ribs don't grow all the way around to protect his lungs and his chest cavity is too small and too crowded for his lungs to develop. Little William's odds of being born alive are tiny and if he is he will probably only live for a couple of hours. Ultrasound pictures are so detailed these days. It's so hard to see pictures of his beautiful face and teeny little hands and to feel him moving around and kicking and know that we will never meet him or get to hold him. We're already attached! Kim was doing okay for awhile because she was determined to donate his organs if he didn't make it so that other babies would be able to go home with their families. Now she is being told that they can't be donated. His condition is in every cell of his body. I don't understand that but I'm not a doctor. Please pray for William and for his parents and grandparents. This is hardest on them.


  1. I am praying for sweet William, dear little baby. William is a blessing to so many people already. God Bless You Cyndi & God Bless your entire family.

  2. I'm so sorry to hear about William... I will definitely be praying. What a sweet little face.
