We recently delivered a basket of food & goodies to the family of baby Joey, who is in the PICU at Toledo Children's Hospital after getting very sick. Her family is staying around the clock with her at the hospital so we thought it might be helpful to have some food/snacks in her room. Eating at the hospital cafeteria can be expensive and sometimes you just don't want to leave your baby!  I don't have an update on baby Joey but praying she will be home for Christmas!

Thank you for all your prayers & support!  Please pray for those families having to spend Christmas in the hospital & for complete healing of their children!  Merry Christmas :)

Last week, we sent another gift card to the family of baby Roberto, who was born with Down Syndrome & had to be taken to Mott Children's Hospital for heart surgery. I know there are other children at home, which makes this situation that much more difficult. Please pray for baby Roberto & his family!

I am very behind on my posts - sorry!  A few weeks ago, we sent out 3 more VISA gift cards.  One went to the family of little baby Evelyn, who was born 6 weeks early by emergency c-section & had to go the NICU. 

Another went to the family of a little girl that was in a car accident with her mom.  The mom & little girl both ended up in the hospital, but in separate hospitals, so extended family was taking turns being with each of them.  What a difficult situation for all!

The last gift card went to the family of twins, Alex & Max.  When the twins were born, Max had to go to the NICU & Alex was able to go home.  Due to all the viruses going around & NICU rules, it was difficult for mom to take Alex with her when she went to be with Max.  Therefore, mom & dad took turns staying at the hospital & at home with each baby.  Both twins are now home & doing great, so praise the Lord for that :)

All these stories just bring me back to when we spent so much time in the hospital with Remi & Benzen.  It is so difficult living in the hospital, especially when you just want to take your child home.  Please pray for all these families & all the other families that we don't know about!  The holiday season is coming up very quickly & although I pray all the children can be home for the holidays, I know that's just not reality.  So pray for their strength to get through these difficult days!

Thank you for your prayers & support!  By the way, we are working on getting R Angel to be an official non-profit organization!  So exciting!!!

Today, we sent a gift card to the family of baby Rylan. Rylan is in the NICU due to complications with his umbilical cord prior to birth. He is also a twin. Rylan's twin brother is home, which makes it that much more difficult for the famy having 2 babies in 2 different places. Please join us in praying for this family as they go through this difficult time & for complete healing of baby Rylan!  We know first hand that miracles do happen!

Please pray for 2 more families with little ones in the NICU. The first baby, Kolten, was born at 35 weeks. This is the parents' third baby born prematurely so they are all too familiar with this. The second baby was born at 24 weeks at only a pound. These 2 babies are roommates in the NICU. Today, we sent them both VISA gift cards to help pay for expenses traveling back & forth as both families live quite far away from the hospital. Please keep these sweet little babies & their families in your thoughts & prayers!

We have several families to keep in your prayers!  We recently sent a gift card to a family of baby Blaire who was in the hospital with respiratory issues. We also sent a gift card to the family of baby Mallorie who was born with Down Syndrome & having some medical issues. What a sweetheart this precious baby is & this story holds a special place in our hearts :). We sent another gift card to a mother who is expecting quintuplets very soon. These babies will be in the hospital for quite some time when they are born due to having 5 at once!  We sent yet another gift card to the family of baby John. He was born at 25 weeks due to complications with the pregnancy. Baby John is currently fighting an infection. His parents have 3 children at home so they are juggling a lot at this time!  Please keep all these babies in your thoughts & prayers, as well as their families who are putting their lives on hold to be at the hospital with them. Thank you all for your continued support!

Today, we sent another prepaid VISA gift card to a family whose baby was born at 28 weeks, weighing just 2 lbs. 13 oz.  Baby Ellie is in the NICU and mom is staying at the Ronald McDonald House while dad is at home working.  We know how difficult this can be staying apart from your spouse to be with your baby!  Last we heard, Ellie was up to almost 5 lbs. and doing well!  Please pray for this sweet baby & her family during this difficult time!

Wow!  We have been so busy with R Angel!  We know that means there are lots of babies and kiddos in the hospital, but we are happy that people are contacting us & connecting us with them.  We haven't had the chance to make any baskets lately, but have been sending lots of gift cards.  Recently, we sent a gift card to the family of a new baby, Graham, born around 24 weeks gestation due to complications with the pregnancy.   Last we heard, he was doing well, but still had a long way to go.

We also sent a gift card to the family of another little baby born around 29 weeks gestation.  Baby Miles' family lives quite far away from the hospital, so we thought a gift card could help pay for gas, etc. while they were traveling to and from the hospital.

We also have a young boy from our church, Johnothen, that was recently hospitalized.  We sent his family a gift card as well to help pay for some of the expenses they would incur while he was in the hospital.

Please keep these sweet children and their families in your prayers each day!  Thank you again for your support!

Hello everyone!  I hope you are all having a blessed new year!  I just realized that I never posted about a sweet little boy that we sent an R Angel gift card to a while back.  His name is Ledger & he was admitted to the hospital when he was 5 months old for meningitis, which led to many complications.  He is home now & doing well, but still has a long road ahead of him.  We know miracles can happen, so please pray for Ledger and his family and for a full recovery! 

Also, THANK YOU so much to all those that continue to support R Angel through their time, prayers, financial gifts, etc.  We appreciate you all more than you know & we are able to continue to help families with children in the hospital because of you!  God bless!
