pray for poppy

I wanted to post as quickly as possible to let you all know that my dear friends - and by now, probably another family that many of you have prayed for - are going in as I type to deliver their own trisomy-18 baby, Poppy Joy. Angie and Nathan are absolutely precious to Conor and I and as they prepare to welcome their second daughter, I have to confess I am just sitting on pins and needles wondering how they are doing, if the procedure is going well, what emotions they are coping with. I wonder. And yet I'm so aware. Knowing what they are walking through is somewhat surreal in the sense that it takes me back. They are going to be led through a wilderness of joy and hope and sadness and sorrow. There will be moments they are unsure of and moments where they've never felt more sure of anything in their lives. So pray for them. Conor and I are planning on driving there tomorrow morning. My heart longs to be with them during this time.

Praying for them today as they meet Poppy Joy and praying for the emotions and feelings this brings up for you. Praying for you every day that the Lord holds you tight in your journey. Love you alot.

I was at Angie and Nathan's blog a few moments ago and read the news.

I am praying.

I won't be able to get there to be with them, so give them an extra hug for us, if you're able.

Rebecca (and Ed)

Praying for the Luce family. Also praying for your sweet family as you walk down this familar path. May you feel the Lord's arms wrapped around you.

You will be such a source of comfort to them. You have strength untapped within you. Blessings to you & yours.
