My Daughter Gave Birth to Quadruplets!

Praise the Lord! Blessed is the man who fears the Lord, who greatly delights in his commandments! His offspring will be mighty in the land; the generation of the upright will be blessed. Psalms 112:1-2

Respiratory Distress/ What We Know





Quad A/Landon with Aunt Devon


Quads A, C, and D are in respiratory distress and in much need of prayer. They are all 3 on ventilators. Baby C is sedated and stable for now. Baby D is very sick. They aren't sure what is wrong with her in addition to the RDS, but suspect infection. It has been very hard to watch what these tiny ones have gone through the last 24 hours.

Baby B is still hanging out. He is doing great.

Sarah has a ligament that tore away from the bone due to the weight of her pregnant belly. The doctor was not able to reattach it because it was too thin, so Sarah will have to wait for it to heal. She is very sore.

What We Know:

Satan has been trying to get rid of these children from the beginning, and God has been there every step of the way.
Although the babies are in good hands, God is ultimately in control.
If we could see the unseen, we would see angels in the room standing watch.
Three babies are critical, yet we choose to hope.
Our lives can be a testimony to the power of God through this experience.

Please pray for us.

Praying! When Andrew was born, he was sent to the very same NICU your sweet ones are in. They diagnosed him with RDS. I cannot imagine having three sweet ones to be concerned about. I am praying for their strength and recovery, as well as their Momma's. I am praying God will grant Sarah peace and grace throughout this time! Praying- Love you!

Prayers are being said in MA, ME, and NH ...and you precious ones have been added to several prayer lines...and those who defend life as their calling have joined as well. Mother Teresa's 100th birthday yesterday has inspired one of these people to ask her intercession. You are not alone and never have been. In life and in prayer...

We hail from the State of Tennessee, and there are dozens of people praying here. Thanks "anonymous" for letting us know that MA, ME, and NH are covering the family with prayers. Please join in and let us know what State you are in...so the family will know who all is lifting them up!
