My husband has three sisters. The middle sister was my maid of honor; she and my daughter share a family name. She and her husband agreed to be our children's guardians in the event of disaster.
After a long struggle with infertility, they arranged to adopt a baby girl. Just a few weeks before the baby was born, they discovered they were expecting. Now they have one little girl who will be 2 in July and another who turned 1 earlier this month.
Her husband was just diagnosed with a rare form of cancer. It's stage IV. They're saying he has no more than a year.
She is asking for prayers: first, for miraculous healing; second, for strength (both physical and emotional); third, for a peaceful transition as they ease their younger daughter out of their bed and into a crib.
