The baby in the photograph is Isabella, a friend’s granddaughter. This picture of Isabella and her parents, Aaron and Stefanie, was taken on Valentine’s Day. I obtained this photograph from Aaron’s Facebook page. Isabella was born two days prior, on February 12. Stefanie was only 24 weeks pregnant at the time Isabella was born. At birth Isabella weighed 1 lb. 2.8 oz., and she was 11 inches long.
I’ve heard from family members that Isabella is doing well; she is a fighter. Please pray for her continued strength.
Prayers are needed, too, for Isabella’s parents.
I cannot imagine what Stefanie and Aaron are going through. It brings tears to my eyes when I realize it has been 5 days since Isabella was born and neither Aaron nor Stefanie have been able to hold their baby in their arms. Please remember this family in your prayers.
