URGENT: Prayers Needed

Your prayers and support are urgently needed for Ann. She is being induced this afternoon after confirming that her baby boy has bilateral renal agenesis. He has no kidneys or bladder and will not live outside of the womb. It is also likely that he has other congenital abnormalities. She is currently 20 weeks along.

I have been reading her blog since the beginning and I am just so heartbroken. Just when you think you're on your way, there is something else that swoops in to steal it away. Haven't us infertiles paid our dues? Why do we always have to be the statistic? I just don't get it. I don't understand and I never will.

She has a tremendous sense of strength and can admirably keep her sense of humor intact during this tragic time. I am in awe. I have to keep quickly wiping the tears away before I make a scene at work.

ETA: Your prayers are also needed for Maya, whose water broke with her 29 week old twin girls. I pray that she is able to hold off labor so her babies can grow stronger.

Lord, help carry my sisters through this time.

oh honey you are so sweet. None of us understand the madness. It just isn't fair.

I hope we all get better news soon.

Unfair in the extreme as you point out.

I cried too when reading. The more you know, the more all life seems an amazing accomplishment.
