Friday - Think of Giving...of time, prayers, God leads

I wish we had the money to help this family, but I can pray. If you are able to help financially, please do so. This was posted by a new blogger friend of mine, Shelley.

A friend of mine, Kristina Levi-Thomas has a friend that recently gave birth at 27 weeks. Kristina sells custom baby items at a store called Keep it Gypsy. Carmen from Keep It Gypsy has decided to have a raffle for a Gift Certificate of $500 dollars of Keep It Gypsy Merchandise to help Angela Lensing (Co Owner of Keep It Gypsy) and Baby Brooks. Angela delivered her baby early at 27 weeks last week. Baby Brooks weighed only 2lbs 6oz and was 13 inches long.

Baby Brooks is currently doing well but, will be in the hospital for several months. Possibly even during the Christmas Holidays. Angela is currently staying around the clock at the hospital with Brooks. This hospital stay will be very expensive. Angela is unable to work during one of the busiest times of the year for the store, therefore bringing in almost no income.

Please consider helping Angela, Baby Brooks and Family by purchasing a raffle ticket. All money made from the Raffle will go to Angela's family to help pay medical bills etc.

The raffle tickets are $10 dollars each. If you win, the gift certificate can be used to buy anything at the Keep it Gypsy Store. Keep it Gypsy is known for it's one of a kind children's gifts and apparel.... custom bedding, diaper bags, canvases, clothing, purses, jewelry, photo albums, lamps, bows, hats, frames, bibs and much much more.... www. keepingitgypsy. com

The raffle will be held on DEC 23rd. If you are interested in helping or purchasing a raffle ticket.
Tickets may be purchased from Kristina or the store now through December! Please pass this along to anyone who may be interested. As a mom to not one, but two preemies, I know what this mom is going through. The last thing she needs to worry about is money. I know money is tight for everyone, but please consider brown bagging it a couple days next week, and mail a check in for $10 and help this family.
I appreciate it greatly.

My children's health is a gift from God. I know this.
I have watched a miracle this week, through a blog. A baby that was supposed to die at birth, and have an enlarged heart, is probably laying in his mom's arms as I write this, enjoying a feeding. She had over 600 bloggers praying for her & baby Stellan. If you can't buy a ticket for Brooks, you CAN pray. Please do so.
