Little Mallorie

Dear friends, prayer warriors, followers of our journey... I would ask you to pause today and say one, or many, prayers for a sweet friend and her precious family!

This friend that I came in contact with several months ago, following our diagnosis of Maddox, is in need of your prayers today and in the days ahead. Her beautiful daughter Mallorie just turned one this past Wednesday and is currently fighting for her life in a Texas hospital. My friend Connie has provided amazing support, encouragement, advice and prayer for me and many of the girls that have walked this road with their babies over the last several months. You see, Connie has been so amazing because little Mallorie was born with spina bifida, a cleft palate/lip, and trisomy... she is one of the babies who has continued to "beat the odds" and she has marveled the physicians and staff that have cared for her.

Their family went into the hospital on Thursday morning for a schedule palate surgery (one of the many continued surgeries that she will need) and thankfully it was successful. However, due to the sensitive nature of her condition, things remain complicated. For Mallorie we are praying specifically for no infections to arise, for easy breathing and the removal of her ventilator, for her comfort and ability to relax, her rapid healing, and for the doctors and staff caring for her. I would also ask that you also pray for Connie, her husband John, and for Mallorie's siblings. We are asking for peace, strength, energy, wisdom, and clarity.

This little one has touched my life in an amazing way... she gave me hope and strength when I was pregnant with Maddox, and she continues to give me hope and an ability to praise God as He reveals His will for each precious life given. Please pray for this family today and in the days ahead.

Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, make your requests know to God.” -Philippians 4:6

Hi Kenzie,

I have been in touch with this family and they will be in my prayers. Thank you so much for posting here so that many can be in prayer for them. Thinking about you and praying for you too dear friend, and pray that your hearts are being held by Him each and every minute. Maddox is one of many babies I hold special in my heart.

Love you, Laurie in Ca.

Hello Kenzie!
I am praying for them and continuing to lift your family up in prayer as well. Sometimes it is easier to do it for others isn't it?
