Turns out some close friends of Brian and his wife were expecting twins. For reasons unknown the friends lost one of the babies in an emergency C-section this past weekend. They were expecting twins but only one survived. Hannah didn't make it but Rachael is alive. Brian describes on his site how Rachael is hooked up to all kinds of machines. Brian writes how "grief seems to bring with it this dark beauty that strips things down, makes things raw" and has a request that we please pray for this family.
Please pray that Rachael is strong in her fight for survival. Pray for Tim & Becky to have peace throughout this terrible experience... for comfort during this time of mixed emotions: the grief of Hannah mingled with the joy of Rachael. And finally, pray that God has mercy on Hannah's soul so that someday she can be reunited with her parents.
Everytime I hear a story like this, I am reminded that God blessed Tess and I with a remarkable family that survived against incredible odds... and it is very humbling. I have little if anything to complain about.
