I’ve been following Diana’s blog for a few years now.
Diana has a little girl who is almost four and became pregnant with twins about a year and a half ago, Her baby boys were born early and not able to live a life on this earth. I hope Cohen is playing with them in Heaven. At the end of last year she became pregnant with another little boy. She had Kaden a few days ago.
After being out of town for a few days, I came home to see her most recent post was titled, “Praying for a Miracle.” My eyes swelled up.
Soon after Kaden was born, she found out he is in heart failure. There is a very small chance that his heart could heal, but more than likely he will need a heart transplant.
This is all extremely hard on a newborn baby, and of course, his parents, too.
They happen to be at Children’s Medical, in Dallas, as we were with Cohen. I know they are in such great hands
This is a nightmare I’ve had more than once. It’s hard not to ask why. A sick baby after loss of another, and in her case, twins. God’s plans are sometimes very, very hard to understand and deal with.
Diana and her family need our prayers. She, as I can imagine, is struggling, but praying for a miracle.
You can click over to her blog and read the posts she has done over the past few days. These last few paragraphs, though, can show you her specific prayers…..
Here’s what we need. I’m not one of those people who has such strong faith that I go boldly before my God with requests. I wish I was. Losing the twins has shaken me to the core. This pregnancy made me fall to my knees again and again. And this? Now my son lays on the verge of life and death as my hands are tied and my faith is rocked. I question it all. All the time. We are blown away by this, and I have to say I’m just barely holding it together and I’m so, so angry this is happening to our child.
As crazy as its beginning to sound to even me – my God is a big God. He had different plans for Preston and Julian than my desperate prayers to let them live, but I still have a faint hope that miracles exist. And I’m asking – begging – all of you tonight with my broken Mama heart that misses all four of the children I can’t hold and feels like I’ve been dropped instead of carried – please pray for something specific. I may be let down (in my human eyes) again, but I just need us to do this for my son:
Pray that God heals his heart. Pray that the power of the Lord is shown through a miracle. Pray that even with my small faith, God can take my imperfect prayers and all of yours and turn this into something powerful. Something big.
I can’t do anymore. I have no strength to endure this without prayer. I’m emotionally done. But I believe as Beth Moore says in her book, “My God is who He says He is. He can do what He says He can.”
I’m praying with each breath that God hears my heart and let’s this be our miracle. Our son. Our life. Our daughter waiting to meet her brother.
Pray with me friends. Pray to our God that He will be there tomorrow as they do this sonogram on Kaden’s heart. Pray for a miracle for our little boy. Share this with everyone so we storm heavens gates with beseeching for an intervention. Fill in the gaps of my faith as we go before a God that loves us more than I can imagine.
