HUGE Prayer Request

The Green Family (Josh's Blog and Lauren's Blog) could really use some prayers right now. They have been on an unimaginable roller coaster ride over the past few weeks in their quad pregnancy. First, baby A's (Heidi) sac ruptured and she passed away a few days later. Lauren was sent home only to return to the hospital days later when Heidi was delivered stillborn at around 18-19 weeks. They placed a cerclage and she was sent home again to continue cooking the other 3 angels. Some time passed and she was readmitted due to being dilated and baby B's sac was bulging. They were forced to cut the cerclage and "let nature take it's course". Baby B's sac ruptured, but she (baby B) still had some fluid and held on. Lauren has been in bed, inverted (head below feet) for some time now. Last night, tragically, baby B, C, and D were born at only 22 weeks. As you know from reading my story, 24 weeks is considered viability so they were not able to save any of their babies. My heart is broken for them. Lauren did everything she was supposed to and her husband Josh was right there for her. They are undoubtedly severely grieving right now. Please keep them and their angels in your prayers. Lauren just updated her blog regarding the nights events. Please keep them in your prayers.

This post is copied and pasted from Jac Tubre's blog. She used such great words explaining it and I have too many emotions going on right now to have composed one. It makes me realize how blessed my family is. Please, please pray for this family!

This makes me cry. I have said a prayer for them. I know what they are feeling (not from losing 4 but 1) and when I read something like this it just breaks my heart. I don't know them but I will continue to pray for them. Love,
