Prayer Update…

Good Evening Beloved,
I want to start by thanking you all for the prayers, emails, and calls regarding little Meredith!!!
I know that it has been several days since you have received an official update, but due to the delicate nature of the situation, I hope you understand.
The Lord brought a new forever member of His family into the world Tuesday at 2:29pm named Meredith.
She weighed 5 pounds 11.7 ounces and she was 19 inches long at birth.
As you can tell from the pictures, she is just simply a beautiful angel!!!!!
We all shared a few hours of hope because Meredith was born crying and outwardly healthy…but at 5:00pm Tuesday the doctors completed their examinations and informed us that there was nothing they could do for her heart condition (HLHS: http://www.webmd.com/heart-disease/hypoplastic-left-heart-syndrome). The doctors did not expect her to have long, so they brought Meredith to Kristen’s room so the family could spend some precious time with her.
Since then, we’ve learned that in addition to being beautiful, Meredith is also a fighter…because she is still with us today, sharing her beauty and courage with us all!!!! The family has returned to Stuart and is cherishing every moment with their little angel. Although the prognosis has not changed, God has already worked the miracle of her birth and now the family’s precious days with her…and for that we should praise Him!
So many of you have offered to help in Jesus’ name, and I will let you know when and how, at the appropriate time, but for now I urge you to continue to pray for Kristen, Chris, Meredith, Broc, and Maddox as they walk this difficult journey with the Lord.
On behalf of the family, thank you for your love, prayers, and support…
In His Grace,
Mark J. Elkins
