Pray for Shepherd

22 04 2009

My dear friend Stephanie and her husband Noah have been spending the last several weeks at UNC Children’s Hospital with their sweet little boy, Shepherd. Steph went to her typical doctor’s appointment on March 27 and was told that the ultrasound revealed it was time to deliver Shep ( she was being monitored more closely for a two vessel cord and a smallish baby).  On March 28 he was born and oh-so-precious to see! By God’s sovereign hand, a doc on call noticed a herat murmur and suggested they check it out, and if they hadn’t, the Joyners would have brought Shep home… and he would have died. Several weeks and a couple of surgeries later, Shepherd is still fighting, but he needs prayer. Check out their blog here for more info.

And here are a few precious pics I snapped when visiting them last week.
