Our Special Janiya!

Do you recognize her?

Yes this is our Footprints baby Janiya! She came by for a visit. Another miracle from up above! She was born at 23 weeks weighing only 1lb 4oz! She stayed in the NICU at Baptist South for
6 1/2 months and then she was transferred to Children's Hospital in Birmingham for another month and a half. Janiya stayed in the NICU for 8 months! It was a very long journey for her. We are praising the Lord that she is now home!

She has one more surgery coming up on her intestines. Please pray for this surgery. Because of each of your amazing prayers Janiya is doing great! The Lord has definitely been at work in the life of this precious child!

Her mother has become a very close friend! I told her mom I would have withdrawals not talking to her every week. Well, I haven't had any withdrawals yet because we still talk once a week! Can I just say how special this family is to Footprints! It absolutely amazing to see where Janiya was and where she is now.

Her mom would agree that Janiya would not be where she is without the Lord and all the many prayers for her! So from Janiya and her mommy Thank you to every Footprints supporter who prayed, encouraged, and supported this family during this difficult time! You have each touched them in a way that I could never express! Thank you!

Thank you Lord for this precious family touched by the Footprints Ministry! Thank you Lord for the opportunity we have to share Your love with these NICU families!

Our prayer is that many more families are touched each and every day!

"So it is right that I should feel as I do about all of you, for you have a special place in my heart."
Philippians 1:7
