Prayers for Baby Hope

Hi, everyone....it's Ellie's mom....filling in for Ellie while she naps (well, she is singing BINGO right now....but hopefully she will be down soon!). Just a prayer request if you don't mind. Baby Hope, our neighbor who is 2 months old, has always known life in the hospital. She remains on a vent and is not able to move her lower portion of her body at all. The doctors think this is brain related. The family has decided that they are going to try to take her off the vent one more time, this Sat. July 28. If she can not breathe on her own, they will put her back on, but this will be the final time. Then, the family will make arrangements when they are ready to take Hope off the vent and let her go with God. Hope's mom explained to me today that the doctors have only given her 1-2 months max. of life to live even if remaining on the vent. The pnemonia or infections she could receive would be far worse and much more painful for Hope than just allowing her to go peacefully. Hope's mom sounded good on the phone today....but I know that these next few weeks are really going to be tough. They are an amazing family that is faith driven and humble. I just ask for your prayers for this whole family. They need your support now more than ever. Thank you so much in advance....I will update you all when anything new develops. Much love and thanks....

Janeen,
Hey there - just wanted to let you know that I have been praying and will put Baby Hope and her family on our prayer board at church on Sunday, too. I'm so glad they have the Shemenski family for love and support. Thanks for keeping us posted.
Love,
Rhonda

My heart is breaking! Baby Hope and her family are in our constant prayers. She is such a little fighter and has been through so much in her little life. God has a purpose for baby Hope's life I know he does. I pray for healing of her body, strength for her family and knowledge for the doctors!! God is an awesome God with him all things are possible!! I will pass on the prayer request...

Hello, and welcome to my page! I am so glad you are here. I am going to try and show you the average life of a 5 year old from my perspective. Mommy and Daddy will help me along the way if I get stuck.

Let me first introduce my family to you. I am Ellie. I am a 6 year old. I live in Ohio with my Mommy, Daddy, little brother Reid, and dog, Sophie. My mommy is a teacher. She teaches nine and ten year olds and loves it. She has been teaching for twelve years. My daddy works with computers. He works hard everyday.

We all love spending time together. I have wonderful grandparents and a terrific extended family. I am a very lucky girl. Thank you for visiting my page. Write to me any time. I love getting mail!!!

Many blessing to you all.

Love,
Little Ski (Ellie)
