We recently sent 2 gift cards to 2 families with babies in the hospital. The first one was for baby Claire. She is only 1 month old & was admitted to the hospital for RSV & bronchitis. She has since been discharged & we are so happy to hear she is doing well!!

The other gift card went to the family of baby Julian. He was born at 34 weeks & needed to spend some time in the NICU to allow his little body to get big enough & strong enough to come home.

Please pray for baby Claire & baby Julian & their families!

A few weeks ago, we were notified of a family that had previously lost 2 babies to severe prematurity. At the beginning of December, they had another sweet baby, Jase. He was born at 34 weeks & had to stay in the NICU for quite some time to grow & develop. We recently sent them a VISA gift card to help pay for expenses they incurred while Jase was in the hospital. Please pray for this family & baby Jase!

We recently sent a prepaid VISA to the family of new twins. One twin has been transferred to Cincinnati Children's Hospital. The family is from Northwest Ohio & has another newborn to care for so you can imagine how difficult this must be. Please keep this family in your prayers during this Christmas season &  pray for this sweet baby!

Also, a special thank you to everyone who made a donation to R Angel for Giving Tuesday!  We really appreciate it!  So many families will be impacted by your generous donations :)

Yesterday, we delivered an R Angel basket of goodies & a prepaid VISA gift card to the family of baby Daniel. Daniel was born with Down syndrome & recently had to have surgery. He will be in the NICU for several weeks while he recovers. Please keep this sweet little baby & his family in your prayers!

On a side note - it was so great to see so many of Benzen's nurses while visiting the NICU yesterday. I love that they all still remember him & I was able to show them pictures & talk about what a little miracle our sweet boy really is. Brings back lots of memories of living in the hospital with him & with Remi, which just affirms why we do what we do. Thank you all for continuing to support R Angel financially & through prayers!  We definitely couldn't do this without you!

Thanks for all your continued prayers!  Please add baby Kynlee & her family to the list!  She is having to undergo heart surgery as a newborn. Pray for strength & healing for this sweet baby!

Please also add baby Parker to your prayers!  He is in the NICU also with heart problems. Pray for healing for this sweet boy & comfort for his family during this difficult time!

We sent both these families VISA gift cards last week to help pay for some of the expenses they may incur while their precious babies are in the hospital, whether it be food, gas, etc.  Thanks for your support & prayers!

Hello everyone!  We are a little behind on our posts!  This summer has been quite busy!  A while back, we delivered a basket of food & goodies to the family of baby Anthony, who was born prematurely & will spend the first few months of his life in the hospital.

A few weeks ago, we delivered another basket of food & goodies to the NICU for the family of baby Brynlee, who was also born prematurely & spent several weeks in the hospital. We are happy to report that this sweet little peanut is now home & doing great!!

We recently sent several prepaid VISA gift cards to some families as well. One was for the family of baby Kinsley, who was born prematurely & her family was commuting back & forth to the hospital every day.

Another VISA was for the family of baby Hazel. Hazel was born with Down syndrome & will be undergoing heart surgery very soon!  What a sweetheart she is!!

Another gift card went to a family of a little boy who was hospitalized for seizures & respiratory failure. The family was waiting on some further testing as well.

The last gift card went to the family of baby Connor. Connor also has Down syndrome & had to go back in the hospital for heart surgery but he is now home & doing great!!

We are so thankful for the good reports we have on some of these sweet babies!  Please continue to pray for each & every one of these babies & their families!  As always, thank you!!

We have 3 more families to keep in your prayers! The first is a family of a sweet baby girl born very early. She has been in the NICU for several weeks & will be there for a lot longer as she gets bigger & stronger. Please pray for this family as they travel back & forth to the hospital to be with their baby girl!

Please also add little Lola to your prayers! Lola was born with only one large heart chamber instead of 4 & was told she would need surgery between 6 months of age & 1 year old. She went in for heart surgery a few weeks ago & has had multiple complications since then. Please pray for the doctors & nurses that are caring for her, as well as her family during this difficult time!

Please also add little Cam to your prayers! He recently had surgery for a bowel obstruction, a hernia, and had his appendix removed. He has one more surgery scheduled. Please pray for this family as they try to comfort their sweet little boy during this difficult time!

We sent all 3 of these families prepaid VISA gift cards to help with the expenses of having a sick child in the hospital. Our hope is that this small gift helps to relieve some of the financial burden of living out of the hospital everyday. Thank you for your prayers & support!
