Prayers for Calla

A while back (about a year ago), I posted about a little girl who was only 11 months old and was diagnosed with cancer. She ended up passing away just past her 11 month birthday. Through the same acquaintance that I found out about her, I found out about another baby that needs our prayers. Her name is Calla Jayne. She was born at only 26 weeks gestation! If you don't know anything about babies and pregnancy, 38 weeks is considered full term. Most babies who are born earlier than 25 weeks, do not survive. She is in the fight of her life! Her parents also have a little boy at home to take care of. They could use all the prayers they can get! You know when someone really is hurting because of the loss of a loved one or because of a loved one being in the hospital, you want to know what you can do to help. Besides prayers, you can donate money to help this family out! They have live in Newton and their little girl is in the NICU in Wichita. That is quite a drive! There has got to be expenses that they didn't expect with having to care for a newborn in the NICU and having a baby at home! If you feel comfortable donating, you can find a button below. If not, at least pray for this family. You can find out as much as I know here: The Johnsons. This is a college roommate of the woman who lost the 11 month old baby and also a sister to a former co-worker of mine. I don't know her personally, but it is amazing what you can learn about a person through their blog! There is a button on the side bar that you can click and donate too. Otherwise, please keep this family in your prayers! Especially pray for little Calla, that she will become strong and will progress each day a little more, becoming one step closer to coming home with her family!

In Him,
