Dear Casey & Dan! Just wanted ya'll to know that I am praying for you guys and thinking about ya'll all the time. I know very soon everything is going to start happening more quickoy even more so than now. I ask you to continue to hold on to that HOPE, because that will be more encouraging and a witness to all you are going to meet in the hospital. I wanted you both to know how you have encouraged me at work. Right now we have a very delicate situation with a month old surviving 24 week twin, whose family is very lost. Most of the nurses have not been very nice to the family as the situation has seemed hopeless to most and the family is somewhat hard to take care of, as they treat each other very roughly. I had their little boy over the past 2 weeks and my eyes have been opened to their need well before the mom told me, HOPE. I read your blog last week and what you said about hope being hard when the end didn't turn out as we desire but how that was what got us through. I felt like I could begin to really reach this family. Even though they may be lost or have walked away from God they still need hope and this mom is clinging to it even though all the news has been so bad... and I realized as a Christian I need to be there for as a nurse who shares with her the Hope she needs. Despite how hard this family may be, we had a long talk about this need for hope the other night, after they held their son for the first time (after a long and very difficult month). I just wanted to share with you how you have greatly blessed me! Thank you!

Casey and Dan, You are in my prayers constantly. I know alot of what you are going through. My daughter Olivia had Zellweger Syndrome and it is a terminal syndome. Do not let the doctors steal your hope... Your hope is in God and he has the ability to heal and to give you the time you desire with your baby. If you need to vent,cry or just have someone that has been there to listen I am here. I know your family and they were so supportive of me and anything I can do for you will be healing for me also.

This is a prayer I found while doing a devotional and I thought it might be helpful and encouraging for you. You are in my prayers daily.

Heavenly Father, make us sensitive to Your Spirit so we will know Your will in every situation. Help us distinguish between our wishes and Your plans. Teach us to trust You even when our prayers aren’t answered in the way we expected. Grant us faith to believe that You are in control and have our best interest at heart. In Jesus’Name, Amen.

I am praising the Lord for your good experience and encouraging Dr at UNC! God is answering the prayers of the MANY, MANY people that are standing in the gap for your baby.

Continuing to pray...

I am so thankful to read that you received great care today and your voice for your baby was heard. I am praying for healing, I always ask God for this because I know He is able, if it is His will. And it is always good to have HOPE, even if it hurts. The Lord knows your hopes and you know where your hope comes from. He can be trusted and is faithful.
I stand in hope with you for this baby's life.
