    A friend of mine went into labor on Saturday, she was only about 26 weeks along. They tried to stop it and shipped her to a bigger hospital about 4 hours away from home, but they had to deliver this morning. The baby is about 2 pounds, which is pretty big, considering. But he only has about a fifty-fifty chance of making it.

    Miracles do happen. 49 years ago my sister was born at 24 weeks, 2 1/2 pounds, and survived despite there being no extraordinary measures available like there are today.

    I will keep your friend and her baby in my prayers.

    Your sister is in my prayers. I have a young friend from church back home that was born at 25 weeks. He is 8 years old now!
    Praying for your entire family and for words of comfort to overflow when you are there to comfort her.

    Miracles do happen and there are many things they can do for these types of situations these days. Prayers:).

    Miracles do happen! A couple in our church went through a similar scenario last January... Michelle delivered her baby when she was 29 weeks pregnant - the baby was the size of a 25 week fetus, one of the major cords were attached to her knee. because it was an emergency section (Michelle was extremly toxic), they didn't have time to give the drug that speeds the development of the babies lungs... She didnt' need it (PTL) Her lungs were fully finctional on their own when she was born (PTL) - she weighed 1 1/2 lbs and went home when she was two months old. She's smaller than a toddler the same age, but she is as active and a doll.

    God is still in the miracle business and all things are possible through Him...
    Praying,
    Brenda

    I don't have a miracle story. I went into labor at 21 weeks on Dec 31, my son died, and I almost did as well. I'll be praying very, very hard for your friend and that precious baby. I don't want anyone to go through this kind of pain. I'm hoping that baby and his family gets a miracle.

    Best wishes and prayers

    The baby died after surgery late last night. He was just too little and too sick. The Mom is all right health wise, but emotionally....not so much...The parents can go home now (they were in a hospital 4 hours away) but it is a very very sad situation.
