Baby Johan

Our second baby, Johan Emmanuel, was born with a rare cardiac condition called Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome.  He had to undergo surgery immediately after he was born.  He needs to undergo several surgeries after that.  He is currently still in the CTICU and the doctors are waiting for him to get strong so they can perform the next surgery.  His lungs and kidneys are also very sick and his heart pressures are abnormal, which combined together, makes his condition even more rare.  My wife and I visit him everyday and never a day passes without tears in our eyes.  It is very sad to see our child in this situation.  Why our baby? I am the only one working because my wife has to take care of our first son, John Ethan.  I am not able to work full time at this time because I need to take my wife to the hospital everyday and also take care of our Ethan.  I need to be there with my family to provide strength during this difficult time.  We know that with God's grace we will win this fight and we will be able to hold our baby Johan in our arms.  Please help us pray for our baby.  We thank everyone for taking their time to read our story.

Thank you to everyone for your continued support during this difficult time through donations, prayers and messages. We appreciate it so much!
