    Please offer your prayers for Baby Matt and the family who has taken him in as their own. He was born with a terminal condition and is nearing the last mile in his journey.

    It has been hard but so inspiring to read about the room that this family has made for him in their hearts. I don't know anyone who would willingly bring home a newborn that wasn't theirs, knowing his stay on earth would be so very short.

    It takes courage and strength of heart that I don't fully comprehend, but that I pray for daily. What love and compassion these parents must have. What conviction in their faith and in God! I can only hope to feel so close one day; to be able to carry out His work as this family has.

    If you want to know more about this amazing family and sweet Matt, there is an icon to the right of this screen. But if you don't, please just take one moment to offer peace for these parents and their other children. And thank God that Matt had this earthly family ready to love him before he returned home to his heavenly one.
