This baby...

I have followed his story since before he was born.

It captivated not only me, but bloggers around the world.

Even my kids recognize his face on my computer, and ask how Stellan is doing. All they know is that his heart is sick, and he needs our prayers.

What I know is this: this baby has touched my heart. His miraculous birth was amazing to read about. His mother's faith is something I strive to achieve in my ordinary life.

What I don't know is this: how do you face the daily possibility of losing your son, your baby, your sweet little boy?

I think this is why Stellan's situation weighs so heavily on my heart and mind. Reading Jennifer's blog every day, admiring her beautifully photographed children, praying for Stellan when he's sick and rejoicing when he is healthy...it brings the whole thing home to me, right through my laptop.



Please join me in praying for Stellan this week, but especially now through Tuesday, when he undergoes another attempt at an ablation to fix his heart arrhythmias. Pray for strength for his parents, wisdom and compassion for his physicians and nurses, and for a complete healing for this little guy's heart.

He may not be our son, but he is someone's beloved and cherished baby boy, and he has worked his way into so many hearts. Please let his be healed.

I remember seeing this story on your blog before I started blogging and if you remember, the first blog I wanted to see when I created mine, was hers. I check everyday to see what is happening with Stellan and not a day goes by that I don't think about them. Praying for them.

I too am praying and thinking about this family. I so hope that things go well for them. This has got to be so tough for her to watch her baby sick, especially when he is on the vent.

I hadn't read Mckmama much until recently. Stellan's story is so heartbreaking. My thoughts are with their family as they go through these procedures.
