Praying for Stellan

Last night I logged into Twitter for the first time in several days, and I immediately noticed a new tag: #prayforstellan.  I follow some AMAZING moms (one day I’ll get around to creating a page where I can link to their blogs — baby steps!), and this tag was all over their posts.  It didn’t take much searching before I found the originating site:

The short story is this: Stellan is a seriously ill baby boy, and his mom Jennifer is blogging about their struggles.  They need prayer right now more than anything, hence the twitter tag #prayforstellan.  You can follow her tweets at

I won’t say much more, because if you want to click through and read her postings, you will.  It’s heartbreaking, especially as a mom, but I recommend her blog for two reasons: 1) She needs us to lift her up in prayer, and 2) It should make you VERY grateful for your healthy children.  My youngest son needed 5 stitches in his chin last week when he fell off his bike — that was nothing compared to what this family is facing.

So do 3 things for me, please?  Kiss and hug your kids, big and small.  Pray for Stellan, Jennifer, and the entire MckFamily.  And pray for all the other critically ill children and their families who struggle day after day.
