Prayers Needed For A Friend

Please say a prayer for a friend of mine today. She's actually my childhood friend's sister, but I know her well enough to also call her my friend. In the last year she has had 3 miscarriages (while pretty far along in the pregnancy...15-20 weeks if I'm not mistaken). She was finally diagnosed with the same blood disorder I have (Factor V Leiden). A few months ago my friend told me that she was pregnant again. She was taking injections and was very hopeful. On Monday she miscarried again for the 4th time at 15 weeks pregnant. Please pray for her as she has a D & C today. This may have been their last attempt at conceiving and I can't imagine the emotions they are going through today. Please pray for them and their whole family. Thankfully, she does have 2 healthy daughters and I know she understands what miracles they are.

Thank you for praying!


  1. Wow, definitely praying. How heartbreaking.

  2. This is just horrible news. I'm so sorry for your friend.
    Praying right now.


  3. She is definitely in my prayers. Having happened 1 or 20 times, the pain is still real. The only difference between the first and the last is that we gain more information with each loss. NOTHING changes the pain.
    May God bless her and her family and may he loving cradle her right now, as she may need it the most!

  4. I am praying for your friend! How difficult this must be for her!

  5. I can't imagine the devastation this has wreaked on your friend's life. Praying for her, and remembering that none of us baby loss mamas are alone.

  6. Jessica told me you had posted & I haven't had an opportunity to stop by. Thanks so much for your prayers. I know she appreciates them too!
