During the fall of last year my wife found out that her friends Jean and Burch were expecting their second child. Several weeks later we were told that their baby boy had been diagnosed with Tetrasomy 9p. And today we read on Jean’s blog that her labor was induced on Saturday because the baby no longer had a heartbeat.

Initially I simply wanted to mention them here as a request for prayer. Pray that the Lord may comfort them in this difficult time. Pray that they may see the glory of the Lord as never before.

However, I also mention them here because their story is a beautiful picture of faith in Jesus Christ. Jean writes about their faith in Christ and God’s faithfulness to answer their prayers and heal their broken hearts. She has also posted a couple of pictures of their baby boy that tugged at my heart and brought tears to my eyes. I commend their story to you. May it touch you as it has undoubtedly touched many others.
