Andrea's due date isn't until April so this could mean a very long stay at the hospital. And if Carrington comes before then, she will have a long stay at the NICU. Andrea is a teacher at a charter school in Kansas City and won't get paid maternity leave. Having to now live in the hospital has come as a shock and Andrea won't be returning to work until next fall.
First of all please pray for Andrea, Leonard and baby Carrington. Staying in a hospital during Christmas and the holiday season will be tough. Pray for baby Carrington to get the blood flow she needs and to grow at a normal rate. Pray for Andrea as she has a major adjustment ahead. Pray for Leonard that he would know how to be there for Andrea and baby while also working to support the family full time.
LET'S BLESS THIS FAMILY!!! The costs of what they will accumulate are unknown at this point. Hospital bills will be through the roof and Andrea will lose most of her salary for the year. I'm going to start the goal at $30,000. I may increase it depending on the future and what happens with hospital bills.
Thank you all so much for donating and praying. This support means the world. Anything and everything helps!
