Charlotte is so good about praying for all of us and passing along prayer requests. Now it is time for us to storm heaven for Charlotte and baby Cupcake!
I just got off the phone with Charlotte and she is in the hospital right now, due to continued stomach cramping which is being caused by high blood pressure. Her doctor has decided that Cupcake needs to be born today, and will either be inducing labor soon, or preforming a c-section. Please pray for Charlotte, the baby, her family, and for the doctors. Thank you!
Loving God, Your love for us is like that of a mother, and You know the hard joy of giving birth. Hold the hand of Your servant Charlotte now and keep her safe; put Your own Spirit into her very breathing and into the new baby, for whom we wait with awe and hope. We ask this through Christ Our Lord. Amen.
Dear Blessed Mother Mary, my Mother in Heaven thank you for remaining by Charlotte's side during her pregnancy. Thank you for the graces that she received because of your prayers to your son for her. I ask for your help especially now when she is about to give birth. Pray for her, please, that she will have the necessary strength and that her unborn baby may enter this world safely.
St. Teresa of Avila, Pray for us!
St. Gerard Majella, Pray for us!
UPDATE: Thank you all for your prayers! Cupcake arrived safely via c-section yesterday morning, September 2nd! Congratulations to Charlotte and family!! We can't wait to meet your precious new daughter!
