I just received some heartbreaking news this afternoon concerning my close friends Matt and Sarah Deter. Sarah went in for a follow-up ultrasound today and they discovered that her baby, little Chloe (due in February 2012), has myelomeningocele spina bifida (the most severe) and hydrocephalus. They are devastated to say the least. When I heard the news it took me right back to when Tammy and I found out about little David just last year. Tonight we are sitting here with tears in our eyes praying for God to comfort our dear friends.
Sarah has been very good about taking her folic acid before and throughout the pregnancy as well as all pre-natals – this just came so suddenly – all the ultrasounds have shown a perfect healthy baby. Time is of the essence – this defect is rapidly growing larger. The doctor said it doesn’t look good – little baby girl may not survive. Sarah and Matt ask that we not believe the doctors report and instead believe the report of the Lord! We are praying for a miracle for sweet Chloe! Please be praying for comfort and peace and that God’s perfect love would surround them and be their strength. I will of course give an update as soon as I hear anything.
Thank you for you love and prayers for our dear friends Matt and Sarah.
