Urgent Prayer Request

UPDATE:  Because the NICU at Children’s Hospital is full, Janessa will not be induced tonight.  They will let her know on a daily basis if there is any room in the NICU, and when there is a place for Edward, she will be induced.

. . .

My husband’s brother, Adam, and his wife, Janessa, are going to have a baby tomorrow.  They are going into the hospital tonight to begin induction of labor.

They have known for awhile that their baby boy, Edward, will have some unique challenges to overcome, as he was diagnosed with arthrogryposis (severe contractures of his arms and legs) at their 20-week ultrasound.

However, more recent tests have shown that his difficulties will be more severe than they originally thought.  Swelling of his face and neck, deformities of his jaw and chest may cause severe breathing difficulties.

Please pray for our nephew today.  And, please pray for his parents, too.  They may have some difficult decisions to make, and are asking for guidance, clarity, and peace throughout this difficult journey.

  1. You are a part of an amazing family who loves you and supports you. Lean on them, lean on the Lord’s strength. May He keep you in his arms. We will be praying for you and baby.

  2. We have sent an email to all of our prayer warriors, many of whom prayed for Matthew. Love you all, lots of prayers being sent for Edward.

  3. Thinking of you all. I will keep you and baby Edward in my prayers.
    I have often turned to this verse from Jeremiah 29:11…For I know well the plans I have in mind for you, says the Lord. Plans for your welfare not your woe. Plans to give you a future full of hope.
    Peace to you both. Love , Connie

  4. Your blog was the first we’ve had as a name for baby Edward’s diagnosis. We are praying non-stop, and have our prayer circle praying too, for clarity and peace in the midst of so much turmoil. I keep thinking, our God is the Master redeemer of the rotten situation, this much only I know for sure. xoxoNami
