Beats for Beckham
When Noah was in the hospital I didn't really understand how it all worked, as far as the Blogosphere goes, that is. All I know is that people around the country and world were praying for Noah and our family, and the prayers and encouragement which came were profound.
During that time a woman named Ginger from Michigan started posting, encouraging my heart on the journey. Over time we've gotten to know one another via emails and Facebook, as well as through her own writings on her blog, sharing stories as she has raised three beautiful daughters, and in more recent months, her journey as a Grandma to a sweet, sweet boy.
(*Unfortunately I can't seem to post a picture of this cutie, but if you follow the links here you'll find lots and fall in love with his handsomeness...)
Beckham was born to Beto and Lindsey, Ginger's daughter, a little over 3 months ago. Leading up to his grand entrance into the world, Beckham was diagnosed with Hypo plastic Left Heart Syndrome and needed surgery shortly after birth.
He has been doing great for a while now, wooing his parents who are so sweet, his grandparents, aunties and lots of other friends, family, and "Beats for Beckham" fans.
Yesterday his parents took him into the hospital because he had not been feeling well. He is in very critical care is now in the Cardiac ICU on an ECMO life support machine.
They are waiting and waiting and watching and praying and praying and waiting and watching...
Will you please join them in praying for God's miraculous healing in Beckham's life and for God's peace and comfort for Lindsey and Beto? He is such a little sweetie and his parents are pretty awesome! My heart can't stop thinking about them because I think of all the strength I gained from *your* encouragement and I'd love to see it sent their way.
