Prayers for a baby

My friend Melissa has a co-worker who just had a baby and he suffered birth trauma. They believe he will be special needs secondary to oxygen deprivation 5 weeks prior to his due date. The miracle is that his mother noticed his lack of movement and they were able to recognize that his cord was bunched up. Baker was delivered and while he is breathing on his own, he is not responding to stimuli and they believe he has brain damage secondary to his oxygen deprivation.

Please pray for his whole family, Mommy--Abby, Daddy--Drew, and Baby--Baker. This is a nightmare and as this community of BLMs I know we know the pain of loss and I know we are a praying supportive group, so please pray for them, as we never want anyone else to join this terrible group! Thank you!

***Update from 2-9-11... The deep middle part of Baker's brain was affected, this controls muscle tone. They don't know what all motor skills will be affected, but it can be any and everything from eating, swallowing, walking, to talking. He will be able to open his eyes and eventually hear, and have his own personality. Also, his breathing is improving. (Update from Melissa). Please continue to pray for them!***


  1. That is so sad. I will keep them in my prayers.

  2. This tugs at my heart strings deeply. I will be praying for sweet baby Baker and his family. Makes me so sad.
