new

Two items.


One: I have a new blog header...what do you think about it? I like to switch things up every few months, but I always get nervous doing so. I was tweaking it last night before I went to bed and wasn't satisfied, but today it's kind of growing on me...I think I just realized this morning that Lily looks like such a big girl in it. My baby is growing up!

Two: I have a new blog I follow. I first found out about it HERE. Warning: if you do not have a box of tissues next to you when you watch the slideshow, you'll be sorry. The actual blog is called I Will Carry You, and it's about a beautiful new baby born named Nora Rose, who has Trisomy 18. Nora is a fighter and she's already wrapping an army of prayer warriors across the nation around her tiny little finger. Will you join me in praying for her and for her family?

Love the new header! Waiting a bit to read Nora's story... I have a friend who had a little boy with a fatal diagnosis with a similarly named blog, I want to read when I have time to cry.

LOVE, LOVE the new header!!!! Lily is beautiful.

I just watched the video through FB, and now I will go check out the blog. I will be praying for precious Nora. She is just a doll, isn't she? What a blessing that they prayed for life and had hope for their baby and God is answering. I just had a friend that recently lost her precious baby girl from Trisonomy 18, but she did die in the womb before she was due. So, what a wonderful miracle that Nora is alive and living and doing so good. Cannot wait to read her blog.

I have a very dear friend now that has a baby she is carrying that the doctors have told her will die any day. They have given her her options. But termination is NOT an option for them. They know she is a perfect gift. We are praying for life for her, for her tumors to shrink, and for all the excess fluid to leave her body. And for strong heart beats and kicks. They are praying for life for her. They think she has Turners Syndrome. This will encourage her.

Thank you for sharing Patti. I hope your Sunday is truly blessed today. Much love to you. xoxo

I have loved following your blog the last few months.
You have helped to develop my heart for those with special needs. I will a home health caregiver this summer and am praying that I get a client with Down Syndrome.
Lily is such a beautiful girl that is loved by her beautiful family.

Thank you! Your life is truly a testament to Christ.

P.S. I LOVE your new blog header. Lily is getting so big!!
