It’s been so long since we’ve delivered a basket of goodies to the hospital!  And it’s so good for my soul to be back in the very place that we spent most of Remi’s life with her. Some people may never want to go back (which we didn’t want to for a long time), but now it takes me back to some special memories :)

Last week, we delivered a basket of goodies to the parents of baby Nicolaj. He was born way too early & has a lot of medical complications. He has already had 2 surgeries in his short life :(. Mom is staying by his side as he grows big & strong, while dad is traveling back & forth to see his sweet baby. I loved sitting & talking with Mom about her journey thus far & sharing some of our journey with her. Please pray for Nicolaj & this family over the next several months!!

I am very behind on this post!  So sorry!  Several weeks ago, we sent out 2 prepaid VISA gift cards. The first one was for baby Trent. He was born right before Christmas & was diagnosed with pulmonary hypertension and had to be life-flighted to Toledo Hospital. We hope our gift card helped in some small way as his family cared for him. We are happy to report that Trent is home & doing great now!!  Please continue to pray for his overall health and development!

The second gift card was for the family of Brady. Brady was diagnosed with cancer and has been traveling back and forth to Cleveland for his treatments. We are happy to report that he has finished radiation - YAY!!!!  He continues to receive chemo every three weeks, but is doing well overall!  Brady is such a fighter!  Please pray for complete healing of his body & for him to be CANCER-FREE!!!

Thank you for your continued support & prayers!

We love hearing about past R Angel families, but when we recently heard about a past family with ANOTHER sick child, our hearts were breaking. This time, their teenage child has been diagnosed with a brain tumor & cancer. He is currently undergoing treatment. Please pray for Adrian & his entire family as they go through this very difficult time!  We know this situation from so many different angles now & we know how hard this must be!  We sent them a gift card to help with some of the expenses of traveling back & forth to all his treatments - we pray this will help in some small way.

We also recently received a bunch of donations in memory of sweet baby Calla (previous post). This was so thoughtful of her family to think of R Angel as a place for donations. The Lord continues to provide for R Angel year after year & we are so thankful for being able to continue to help families in memory of Remi ❤️

Have a blessed Christmas season!  Thank you all for your continued support!

We recently sent a gift card to the family of a little baby girl, Calla. Calla was born prematurely & spent her life in the NICU fighting for her life. What a fighter she was!  Although sweet Calla passed away in her parents' arms after just a short 14 days, we know she touched so many lives in her short time on this earth. Please pray for Calla's parents & their families as they mourn the loss of Calla & attempt to pick up the pieces & move forward.

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!
