What beautiful weather we have been having!  As I play outside with my kids, I remember this time last year when I sat in the NICU with our son & looked out the window at the sunshine, wishing more than anything we could go home.  So many families are feeling the same way right now so please be praying for them.  Here are a few R Angel VISAs we've sent recently:

One was for the family of a little baby girl, Paisley, who was hospitalized for bacterial meningitis, and remains in the hospital trying to recover.  They have a long road ahead of them so please keep them in your prayers!

One was for a mom of a young boy who passed away from a car accident.  We wanted to send something to try to help, in a small way, with some of the expenses of the funeral, bills, etc.  No mom should have to worry about money when she is mourning the loss of a child.  Please pray for this mom & the entire family!

One was for the family of a baby born at 28 weeks.  She was only 1 lb. 7 oz. at birth and will be hospitalized for quite a while until she gets bigger and stronger.  Please keep them in your prayers as they stay with their baby and drive back and forth to the hospital!

One was for the parents of a little girl with Down syndrome.  I actually just became friends with this mom on Facebook by chance.  Her husband & her have 3 biological children and have adopted 3 children with Down syndrome.  It has warmed my heart to read her story and see the sweet pictures of her children.  Sadly, her little girl was recently diagnosed with cancer (leukemia) & is going through chemo.  She is only 1 year old.  Please pray for this entire family, especially for baby Kate!

The last one was for the parents of a little girl who has a rare genetic disorder that already took the life of her sister a few years ago.  She is now struggling with the same disorder & is only 2 years old.  Please pray for peace and comfort for this family as they go through this difficult time with their sweet child. 

Thanks again for all your support for R Angel!  We couldn't help these families if it wasn't for all of you :)
