Baby Charlotte

27006808_15161264360_r.jpegJanuary 13th Vanessa started having regular contractions at not quite 27 weeks pregnant. She went to Licking Memorial Hospital where they were unable to stop her labor. She was transferred to St. Ann's Hospital. There her labor finally stopped but her water had broken. January 15th at 7:17 pm Charlotte Grace entered this world at 27 weeks, weighing 2lbs 2oz. Doug and Vanessa were not expecting a premature delivery and also have 2 foster kids at home. With this unexpected arrival Doug and Vanessa will have medical expenses as well as living expenses. Doug and Vanessa are both self employed. So there is no sick or vacation pay. With having the pregnancy cut short, their time to prepare was cut short. 

God has his hand on Charlotte so as well as money donations we ask that you please keep this family in prayer.
