We're praying for miracles

Today I come to you with a very special, important request.  Please, if you are the praying kind, send up a prayer.(If you're not the praying kind, send all the good vibes you have!)

Meet Amber:
Amber is my Sister's good friend.  A gorgeous girl who truly has the sweetest personality and a kind heart.  Just last weekend, Amber showed up for my nephew's 5th Birthday party- only weeks from delivering her first child.  Anyone who has children, knows how chaotic a child's birthday party can be!  Most of the parents who are there with their children don't even want to be there!  Yet there she was, as she has been in year's past, with a smile on her face.  She even joked about jumping in the bounce house to induce her labor ;)

Meet Adeline:
Adeline is Amber's sweet daughter.  God blessed Amber and her Husband on Tuesday with the gift of this precious child.  She is healthy and beautiful.  Look at that perfect little face!

The problem here is that Amber has not yet met her daughter.  She hasn't been able to touch her soft skin, kiss her little cheeks or whisper "I love you" in her ear.

Amber's Husband came home on Tuesday to find his wife unconscious.  After an ambulance rushed her to the hospital, Adeline was delivered via c-section, and it was discovered that Amber had suffered a brain aneurysm.  She was taken into brain surgery where they found a nickel size blood clot.  She has remained in a coma since Tuesday.  Day 1 after surgery seemed hopeful, day 2 was up and down- today is day 3 and we continue to pray.  Praying for God to heal Amber so she can meet this sweet girl she helped to create.  Praying for Adeline to be in Mommy's arms soon. Praying for strength for her Husband and their families.  We're praying for miracles.

I am asking you to pray with us today, tomorrow and in the days ahead.
This sweet girl and her family need prayers more than ever.
There is  group on facebook to keep everyone updated and to unite us all in hope and prayer.
Let us raise them up.
