If you have been around my blog for a year, you will recall my frequent prayer requests for and updates on my friend Cindy's baby, Madeline Therese, who was born on January 18th of last year at a mere 27 weeks gestation. She was a bit over two pounds at birth, and went down as far as 1 lb. 10 oz. Well here she is, little miracle, showing no ill effects whatsoever of her extremely premature birth:
That is what the power of prayer can do! Cindy wanted me to thank everyone who prayed for Madeline in those tenuous first months of her life. She has a special bond with this baby, and Madeline brings her immense joy. Happy birthday, you amazing little thing!
