For the new little one
« on: March 03, 2009, 11:27:19 AM »
Mr. Y and I found out a couple of weeks ago that we are going to have another addition to the family!  Please pray for us as we lost our last one about 3 months into the pregnancy.  We'd like this one to be healthy.  Thanks!

Lord have mercy and may this child be strong and healthy

Lord, have mercy!

My wife and I experienced the loss of an unborn child several times, it was sad, and we eventually stopped trying. We learned to be happy with our only one "little girl" (now 24 :)).

My all best to you and Mrs. Y. :)

Lord, have mercy!
