Praying for Boston

This blog is to request that all of our friends and family join in a prayer chain for Boston Clark. Boston's parent's, Kelly and Charlie, are friends of ours who live in Angola, Indiana who were mentors and friends of mine (Will) while I was in college.

Boston was born last Saturday at 30 weeks, weighing 2lbs 3 ounces. This is an excerpt from Kelly's blog. "I had my 30 week appointment yesterday and ended up in the hospital. My OBGYN and also a prenatal - neonatal specialist did not like the look of the untra sound, mainly the blood flow through the umblical cord and he is measuring 3 weeks small which of course is cause for concern. Had a steroid shot to help develop the babys lungs as well. We were both hooked up to monitors and hanging in there." They ended up delivering Boston via c-section due to the lack of blood he was receiving.

Boston will be in the NICU for quite a while. Please pray for Boston that God will continue to strengthen him and allow to go to home as soon as possible. Also pray for Charlie and Kelly that they will have the strength to endure this tough time.

Family Pics

I know that some of you have seen these pictures several times before, but for those of you who haven't seen them yet, please enjoy! A wonderful friend and talented photographer took these and we love them!

Day at the Park

Last Saturday we had a little bit milder weather (for those of you up north, read low 90's) so we decided to take Breckin over to the park. He was quite interested in all the other kids there and the woodchips on the ground, the play equipment - he could take it or leave it!
