A Family in Need

One of my blog readers send me this email and I wanted to pass it on to you…keep this family in your prayers.

Noemi –

You don’t know me from Adam, but I was directed to your blog while following the Morrison’s and just got wrapped up in your beautiful story telling ability, so now I check your blog almost daily.  First off, congratulations on the new baby, he is just precious.  My little one is just about 5 months old and I can’t believe how fast they change.  Enjoy every moment with him.

The reason I am writing this email is that the people that follow your blog seem to be very faithful and kind.  I came across a blog through the crib sheet blog on the Star Trib site and have been riveted to it ever since.  I didn’t want to just post this prayer request in your comment section as I didn’t feel that was appropriate, but wanted you to make your own judgement call on whether or not you wanted this information out there.  The gentleman writing this blog is taking care of his 4 week old preemie daughter as his beautiful wife died 27 hours after the baby was born.  Matt is looking for advice and words of encouragement on his blog to keep him going.  I couldn’t think of a kinder circle of folks to present this request to than you and your bloggers.  He is a Minnesotan transplanted out in California.

Again, I don’t mean to intrude or overstep any boundaries, especially since you are busy with the new baby.  Also didn’t want to bring bad news during such a happy time in your life.  If I did overstep, I truly apologize.

Take care and thank you for listening,
Chris Tuttle

I love the network of mom’s and photographers that read this blog. Let’s shower this new dad with love and encouragement!

Congratulations to you on your new bundle of joy!

I have been checking your blog everyday since I read about the sextuplets when looking at a friends wedding pics.

Thanks for posting this email. What a terrible experience for this father and his daughter. I can’t imagine what he feels. I just had a baby girl in January and can’t imagine how my husband would get along raising our daughter alone.

Thanks for posting this. I checked out the link. What a sad story. I can only imagine what the guy is going through! Anyway, hope everyone takes a moment to at least post a few words of encouragement for this guy. I think he could really use it.
