Babies, babies, BABIES! And they need our help.

A few days ago I posted about sweet baby Abby, who has a very rare disease, so rare only FOUR people have it.

This is just the most amazing part- Heather, a fellow blogger contact me about wanting to do a giveaway for a good cause, and told me she wanted to help little baby Abby. My heart was so touched. Heather is doing a giveaway, where ever dollar you donate, is an entry in her giveaway! It is truly the sweetest thing I have ever been a part of. Please please check out the wonderful, informational, and super touching post she did on baby Abby HERE! So so sweet. There were over $300 in donations on the FIRST day!! Let's all do our part where we can to help, weather it be donating, or praying for this sweet baby girls health.

Here is Abby with her Auntie Tasha! Tasha and my sister are BFF's!

Also, in more baby news, my cousin Jessica had an emergency c-section two days ago, at 25 weeks. 

My cousin Jess, and her hubby Grant. 


If you were reading last year, Jess may look familiar from this post, when her mother passed away.

Well Jessica, Grant, and sweet baby girl Elise need our prayers again.

I don't know all the details of why the c-section happened, but I do know that it was absolutely necessary, for mommy and baby. 

Elise was born weighing 1 lb,  4 oz. Her apgar scores were good, so that is very encouraging. She has been a little fighter, and each new day brings new news. 

She is just a little miracle. 


Please pray for sweet baby girl's health, for excellent doctors and nurses, and for peace for my cousin Jessica and Grant, & their families. I cannot imagine how hard this is on them, but I do know how strong Jessica is, and I know she is being the best mommy in the world, just like her momma :)

Love you Jessica, Grant, AND little lady Elise!

I am a huge follower/lover of your blog and this post is so very near and dear to my heart. 5 months ago (2 weeks before my wedding) my twin nieces were born at 26 weeks, weighing 1 lb 14oz and 2lbs 6oz. They spent the first 2 1/2 months of their lives in the NICU but I'm so happy to say that they are doing GREAT today and growing more and more every day.
The only thing that got my family through this tough and scary time was knowing SO many people were praying for and supporting us. It was amazing, so I will definitely keep your cousin in my prayers!

xoxo,

Olivia

I will keep both babies in my thoughts and prayers. I have seen babies born at 23 and 24 weeks thrive in the NICU so I know the amazing doctors will care for that baby <3
