Please pray for my daughter, Rachel, as she is delivered of her first child on Tuesday. It's been a very difficult pregnancy with many complications. The due date was to be Oct 29, but her regular physician and her specialist decided that it would not be safe for her to go beyond Tuesday, the 9th.

Thank God for each of you and thank you.

Bob

May the Lord have mercy on Rachel and may the blessed Virgin Mary keep her (and her baby) under her protective veil. AMEN.

Prayers for Rachel, as she becomes a Mom. May the Theotokos give comfort to her and hold she and her baby in her mantle of protection. Prayers, too, for the Dad-to-be, and for the grandparents.

The good news is that Thomas William Baldini arrived yesterday at 12:04 p.m. EDT. He's 7.28 pounds and 19 inches long; delivered three weeks early due to severe placenta previa. His father says he'll need his first haircut next week--full head of black hair.

Mother is doing well this morning.

Thank you, Lord, for all the good things You have poured out so abundantly on us, Your servants. Thank You, because every good gift and every perfect gift comes down from above from You.

Thank God for each and every one of you, too, and thank you for your prayers.

Bob

Dear Bob,

Many congratulations to you and Loretta for your little grandchild, Thomas William!

May the good Lord bless him and keep him all the days of his life.

(I thought you might like this folk saying from Greece: my child's child is twice my child!)

With love in Christ,
Alice
