Spiritual Bouquet for Baby Brayley

Please pray for *Baby Brayley this morning and for her mother and father. Brayley is scheduled to be born via C-section at 9:30am CST. This little one is not long for the world according to multiple medical personnel but our hope is in Heaven and the mercy of Our Lord. Please pray that her mother is granted as long as she needs to at least baptize her and say goodbye. Any more time than that will be a precious gift. There is a photographer coming to take pictures. Haley and Billy will need many prayers to support them as they say "hello" and possibly "goodbye" to their little girl today. If you would like to offer your specific prayers or sacrifices as a spiritual bouquet, you may do so in the combox. I will print them out for Haley as a memento.


UPDATE:
1:30pm ~ Haley's godmother called just now and said that Brayley was born around 10:30 this morning. She was doing well for right now resting on her mother's chest trying to stay nice and warm. She is beautiful and plump at 6 pounds. Please keep praying!

1:50pm ~ Just got another call saying that Brayley's health is deteriorating rapidly. Blessed Virgin, cradle them in your loving arms.

5:28pm ~ I just received an email from Haley's godmother that Brayley, who's brief journey on this earth was filled with only love, has passed away into the heavenly arms of Our Father of perfect love. Please continue to pray for the family she leaves behind as they mourn their loss.



*I will leave the donations button on the sidebar open through this weekend.

  16. Please tell Brayley's mom and dad that I will be offering up all of the trials and tribulations of this day for their intentions. Although it might sound miniscule, today is a day in which I am confronting great attacks against my family and faith. Instead of complaining or becoming overwhelmed at these trials, I am thankful to have the opportunity to think of a Trial so much greater than mine could ever be, and offer up my day to help ease someone else's pain.

    I will also pray my rosary for Bill, Haley, and baby Brayley.
