Beautiful Baby Alex

UPDATE:  Please pray for the family. Baby Alex passed away today, May 5th.  We now have a  St. Alex to adore God in a most perfect way, but how heavy our human hearts are.

 Thank you to all those who prayed for my friend's delivery of her beautiful little baby boy, Alex John who has Trisomy 18.  I was blessed to get to go up to the hospital to visit.  As you can see from the picture he is so very darling!
And has alot of hair!  He weighed in at 5 pounds 4 ounces and 18-1/2 inches long.  Please continue to pray for Baby Alex and his beautiful family, they are such a beautiful witness of what it is to be truly pro-life and faith-filled.... and joyful at the same time.

How often people make the poor choice to terminate life based on the imperfections of the human body (among other selfish reasons).  What they deny themselves is love and the intercession of God to bring Grace down to the family.  But here we have a beautiful example of the faithful love of the family, the way God intended it to be.

Baby Alex was baptized and confirmed.  Please also remember our faithful and dedicated priest who was able to be there for any number of hours!

  1. Offered prayers...what a beautiful testimony for life. The family will be blessed from knowing, even so briefly, baby Alex. May God reward them for their faithfulness, and may the Blessed Virgin wrap them in the comfort of Her Mantle...St. Alex, pray for us!
