Dear Family, Friends, Parishioners, and Community Members,

On December 1, 2017, Donald and Erikajoy Clayton welcomed their son Solomon Clayton. Baby Solomon was born premature and just 28 weeks after a very complicated delivery, weighing just 2.13 lbs. and 16 inches long. Although we are absolutely full of love and joy for the welcoming of Solomon, we are in a state of prayer and hope for him during this very delicate time.

As many of you know, a baby born before 37 weeks of pregnancy is considered a premature baby and is at high risk of many health complications and risks; every breath he takes is precious and delicate. For this reason, baby Solomon will be under the care of the great doctors, physicians, nurses, and staff at Memorial Hospital for approximately two months or more.

With that will come the financial burden of the medical expenses. Many of you have expressed interest in helping, and given that Erika will be taking this time to focus on Solomon’s health and well being, Donald will be the only one working, therefore we are reaching out to all of you to help alleviate the financial burden so that they may direct all their focus on baby Solomon’s delicate health.

The Clayton’s would be so grateful for your financial generosity and prayers. Any amount will greatly be truly appreciated, from the bottom of all of our hearts.

Above and beyond all, God’s spirit dwells in them, is caring for them, watching over Solomon and guiding Donald and Erikajoy; your prayers and consideration are invaluable.

—“A gift opens the way and ushers the giver into the presence of the great.” Proverbs 18:16

Very truly yours,

The Newmans
