I know I have been a terrible blogger these past two months, and I assure you I have an excellent reason, which I was going to share with you today.  However there is something that takes precedence over that.  A friend who I met on a wonderful site for women who have been TTCing for more than a year NEEDS EVERYONE'S PRAYERS!!!!

Karen has struggled with infertility for a long time, like many of us.  She has endured several miscarriage, like a lot of us.  She and her husband were finally blessed with a beautiful baby boy this past November via IVF.  His name is Caleb.  The family is in the process of moving from Australia back to Canada and Karen and Caleb went ahead to find a place to live.

Yesterday, she requested prayer for little Caleb who is only 4 1/2 months old.  Apparently he stopped breathing and was rushed to the Children's Hospital where they are.  He is on life support and it was determined that he has severe swelling on his brain.  The doctors have said that there is nothing they can do to save this sweet little baby.  Karen is waiting for her husband to fly from Australia to Canada to be with them before they take Caleb off of life support.

So I am asking that whoever is out there and reads this....PLEASE PRAY FOR THIS FAMILY!!! They endured so much to have this little miracle and they so need a BIG MIRACLE right now!  The picture below is sweet little Caleb.  There is also a link to the Facebook group that has been set up for Caleb and his family! Please join the group if you would like to.  It is an open group so pass it along!  Thanks for your thoughts and prayers!  I know this family will appreciate them!

Little Caleb only 4 1/2 months old

Sorry for the lateness of this update, but baby Caleb was pronouned brain dead shortly after this post.  He now rests in the hands of our Lord and Savior.  His daddy was able to make it to the hospital before they took him off lifesupport.  The family also decided to give the gift of life to other children in need and donated his organs.....so Caleb lives on in the lives of the children he helped because of this tragedy.  Please remember this family as they heal and find a way to move on with life after such a tragic and unthinkable loss.  Thanks
