Everest’s Mama and Daddy are friends of a dear friend of mine, who shared their story with me earlier this week. I want to share it again here, because I know you are a band of women who knows how to pray for the hurting, and I know many of you have lived through losses like the one Taylor and Joe just experienced.
After multiple ectopic pregnancies, a miscarriage, and eventually IVF, Taylor finally gave birth to a beautiful baby boy: Everest Valor. He was delivered via c-section at 23.6 weeks gestation, after Taylor developed HELLP syndrome, and lived on this earth only a matter of days.
Taylor shares their story powerfully HERE, and I could never do her heart or words justice. I urge you to read her words, and then come alongside her and her husband in prayer. As followers of Jesus Christ we are instructed to “pray for one another so that we may be healed.” (James 5:16) Everest Valor has already experienced the ULTIMATE healing. Let’s pray now for Taylor and Joe to experience supernatural healing that only Jesus can give. I just cannot imagine the test this has been of Taylor’s faith, yet she and Joe remain faithful, and even hopeful in the face of her pain and heartache.
They have decided to pursue surrogacy, and feel that God has given them a surrogate who has been a part of their amazing story since its beginning. A donation page has been set up for anyone who feels led to give, and of course do that if God puts it on your heart. But that is not my main purpose for sharing this on the blog today.
My heart is so heavy for Taylor and Joe, and I CANNOT IMAGINE enduring what they are going through right now, yet they remain resolute, and full of hope for their futures. Please, please, please lift them up in prayer in the coming days.
