Today, we sent a prepaid VISA gift card to a family that we originally met through R Angel because of their sweet little boy, Ridge. Well, Ridge & his family have had a long road, but recently Ridge's mom went into surgery to donate one of her kidneys to Ridge. What an awesome mommy she is! We are happy to say they are both doing very well, but Ridge still has a long road to recovery, so we wanted to send them another R Angel to help with this hospital stay. Please pray for Ridge's recovery & for his mom's recovery as well!

We also sent a prepaid VISA to a family of a new little baby, Cullen. He was transferred to the Toledo Hospital NICU at birth because of what they thought was a traumatic reaction to the birth. That's the last I've heard, but please pray for him as he gets better & hopefully strong enough to come home with his family! We hope this gift card will help his parents as they spend these difficult days in the hospital. They live about an hour away from the hospital so we know how expensive gas can get as well. Please keep baby Cullen in your thoughts and prayers!

    I am Cullen's mommy and I wanted to thank you so much for the gift card!

    We we were blessed to be able to go home on Feb. 2nd, Cullen's original due date, 6 days after he was admitted. We left the NICU with no diagnosis and no answers to why he was lethargic at birth and has low muscle tone. He miraculously got better on his own, moving his arms and legs without any therapy, his ammonia levels going down, his blood sugar going up, and being able to feed on his own.

    We have been home now for a week and he continues to improve. We have a visiting nurse to monitor his weight and we are waiting and watching his development to see if physical therapy will be needed in the future.

    Thank you for your ministry! What a blessing it was to have your gift card show up in the mail.

    Thank you!
    Erin, Jason, big brother Jerek, and baby Cullen
