Prayers for Marjorie

Our world turned upside down on Monday, September 29, 2014. What began as an ordinary rainy day, ended in an ambulance ride and the beginning of a mother’s worst nightmare.

At 25-weeks pregnant, my water broke unexpectedly. Medically speaking, I experienced pPROM (Preterm premature rupture of membranes (PPROM) is when the amniotic sac breaks before 37 weeks of gestation. Through the power of prayer and God’s grace, we survived those ten terrifying days that ended on October 8 with the birth of our precious daughter.

Marjorie is the definition of a miracle: born three months early, she defied the odds. By all accounts, she should have come home on oxygen, had major eye problems and a host of other complications. But not our girl. After 68 days in the NICU, Marjorie said it was time to come home. Today, Miraculous Marjorie is at home with her big brother and is THRIVING.

This is Marjorie’s Story.
