Baby Stellan

There are very few bloggers that have not heard of baby Stellan. His mommy, MckMama, has a blog called "My Charming Kids." She hosts the "Not Me Monday" carnival that so many of us had participated in. She's just a regular mom, but she's going through an ordeal none of us would want to go though.
Her youngest child, Stellan, is a very sick baby boy. In utero, he was diagnosed with a deadly heart condition, but God saw it fit that he be born and have several healthy and happy months with his family. Again, he is in dire trouble. He's been hospitalized for about 1 month now and was flown to a children's hopital in Boston a few days ago. Probably having a life threatening surgery tonight or in the morning. I've been reading his mother's updates regularly on twitter and her site. I talk about Stellan with my family and friends. And as it turns out, people across the world now know his name.

I hope you'll take a minute to pray for this little angel. No, we do not know him. He's no more special than any other one of God's children, but to me he symbolizes all of our children. His family is no more important than any other family, but to me they symbolize what is most important in this life...love.

One more thing, on MckMama's website, months ago, she started a gallery of Stellan's name. You really must check it out. And here's our contribution. Carson drew his name and we're praying for Stellan!
