Please check out this blog and pray for this family

I've been following a family on the internet for a few months now. They are Tricia, Nate and Gwyneth. Tricia has Cystic Fibrosis and requires a double lung transplant. Nate is her husband. More like her Champion. It is his blog that I've been reading daily about their lives in the hospital. Gwyneth is their miracle baby.

One day before Tricia was due to enter the hospital to prepare for her transplant, it was discovered she was expecting the baby she had always longed for! Tricia became very ill carrying Gwyneth and required the placement of a trach. She became so unstable that Gwyneth was delivered at 24 weeks.

Nate goes back and forth between the two ladies in his life, blogging all the way. I have fallen in love with this family and their story. Tricia is re listed for transplant at the top of the list. Please pray for them that the new lungs will arrive soon, and for the family members who will be losing their loved one so that Tricia may receive the Gift of Life.

Here is Nate's blog.
