Family, friends, prayer warriors we have yet to meet,

As many of you know our family is adopting a sweet little baby in California. Our little man, Micah, has had a pretty tough start in life. He has a rare genetic syndrome and additionally has had difficulty feeding, a urinary tract infection and a questionably-diagnosed case of COVID. Altough he has tested negative, he has been and continues to be held in isolation, and we are unable to be with him.

We are grateful to God for his clear hand in our match with this precious little man. We have been so encouraged by the support of each and every one of you. As parents we are also crushed by the burden he has had to carry in his few weeks of life and are eager to see the day when he is able to be set free from physical isolation and all the wires of the NICU.

Many have asked how they can help. While we are rather overhwlemed, we do not have articulable needs at this time. So, first and foremost, please pray. Pray that God would heal Micah's physical body quickly, that he would be strong enough to eat and to digest properly, that the doctors and nurses would correctly diagnose and treat him and that we would be able to be physically with him. Please pray for the rest of our family that we would stay well.

This next request is so special it gets its own paraghraph. Micah's little body seems to tolerate breast milk far better than the formula. He has been getting donor milk. It was my hope to re-lactate but now I REALLY need to relactate. This may be too much information:)....but please pray that I am able to produce milk ASAP. We serve a God who can move mountains and so I know if it is his will, I will produce milk.

If you would like to contribute financially, any funds raised will go towards our placement fees, attorney fees, travel back to VA and his ongoing medical needs. 

We are so greatful for you all!

Jordan and Lacey

Hello Friends!
Thank you for continuing to pray. We made it home uneventfully! We even  got a free seat for Micah on each flight!!! That was huge:) Sadly, a few hours after we got home Micah developed a fever and had to get readmitted to the hospital in VA. We were glad we at least made it back to the correct coast:) We have again been discharged and things are going well. We have our first pediatrician appointment tomorrow to get plugged into the needed specialties. We appreciate your continued prayers for protection from infection and wisdom for our family. The big brother and sisters are THRILLED to have him home:)

Thank you all for continuing to pray! We are also so greatful for the generous donations, thank you so much. We were able to leave the NICU Friday evening! Micah is very sleepy, his tone will be reduced but he has gotten so much stronger! We're pretty sure he's enjoying his life free of tubes in his nose and lots of needle sticks! We have an appointment with a pediatrician here in CA on Monday and are hoping to get home soon. For now we are waiting on some legal steps to be completed for us to be able to leave the state.
Please pray for complete resolution of his kidney nephrosis, for a healthy gut as he continues to stay on antibiotics, for protection from further infection and cooties as we travel and that we are able to get quickly plugged in to specialties at home. Thank you!
