Many of you know our friends Chris & Shelly Talbott. They were blessed with a beautiful baby girl on Friday, August 1, 2008. Elliana (meaning "God hass answered our prayers") was born with a cleft lip which they knew about prenatally. Yesterday the doctors also diagnosed precious Elliana with Trisomy 13. Most children born with this syndrome do not reach their first birthday. But we know that God is much more powerful than any statistics! He has a wonderfully divine purpose for Elliana. Please pray for Chris and Shelly as they have many decisons to make about Elliana's medical care. Pray for wisdom. Pray for comfort. Pray for peace. They also have 2 other children, Carson who is almost 4 and Eli who is 14 months. Carson has been so excited about her baby sister and already loves her so much! Please pray that the Lord will give them the words to help Carson understand what is happening. And pray that God will protect and comfort this sweet family. God is good!!!
