I am so behind but we have so many babies to pray for!  Over the last month, we have sent prepaid VISA cards to 4 different families. One card was for my dear friend Chelsey & her little boy Charlie. Charlie has Rhizomelic Chondrodysplasia Punctata (RCDP), which is a form of dwarfism. Charlie was in the hospital for surgery. He had a difficult time being extubated after surgery but I am SOOO happy to report that he is HOME now & doing amazing!!  Please continue to pray for sweet Char because he continues to struggle day to day with RCDP.

The second one was for baby Levi. He was born at 32 weeks & was going to spend many weeks in the NICU. Please continue to pray for baby Levi as he grows big & strong!

The third one was for baby Casadie. Baby Casadie was born a twin & unfortunately lost her twin at birth. Please pray for this family as they mourn the loss of one baby while rejoicing in the birth of another baby, who had to spend time in the NICU on top of everything else.

The fourth one was for another sweet baby that was born a twin. One twin was in the NICU & sadly, the other twin passed away. Again, please pray for this family that is mourning the loss of one twin & caring for the other twin in the hospital.

Thank for all for the continued prayers & support!  Please pray for all these families & sweet children!

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!!
