Anencephaly (and prayer request)

Most of you know that my second baby, Emily Rose, died two hours after birth from a condition called anencephaly. Anencephaly is like spina bifida except it happens right at the top of the head. The top of the skull and most of the brain simply fail to form. It is universally fatal.

A woman contacted me through Emily Rose’s website (the Carrying To Term pages) about her baby. She’s keeping a weblog for her daughter Faith Hope, and I’m passing it along to you. I know she’ll appreciate any prayers or good wishes you send her way. Faith is due at the end of next week, but as many babies with anencephaly don’t trigger labor on their own, she may go longer than that.

Please keep Faith and her mother in your prayers.
