Support Kyleigh Faith Turner

Melissa was informed during a routine ultra sound that her precious baby girl, kyleigh Faith, has a CONGENITAL DIAPHRAGMATIC HERNIA (CDH).  Although this is a life threatening birth defect, Melissa and her family know that their baby girl is being held in the hands of our father.  She has enough faith to move mountains and knows that through Jesus miracles do and will happen!  She and her husband T.J have made it clear that they are willing to make any sacrifice necessary to ensure their beautiful blessing receives the best possible care available.  To them, this is not a troublesome sacrifice; this is what God has called them to do in order to raise this little girl up to give back to him.  During this process, Melissa and T.J will have to leave their jobs and head to Houston beginning at 35 weeks.  Houston's Children's Hospital specializes in the care and treatment of CDH.  They will remain there for an undetermined amount of time, until baby Kyleigh Faith is released to come home, which could be several months.  This will require both T.J and Melissa to leave their jobs but continue to support their three beautiful children, pay their mortgage here in Temple while maintaining a new temporary residence in Houston, as well as pay for medical bills not covered by insurance and any and all other living expenses.  Melissa and T.J are not questioning their decision, no; they are completely walking by faith and not by site.  Giving up is not an option, this fight has only just begun. The financial burden they are facing is overwhelming at a time when they need to be focused on Kyleigh Faith's recovery. I ask that you will keep them in prayer first and foremost. And for all of you, who contribute financially, please know that your generosity is greatly appreciated, and we know that God will bless your efforts.  As one of Melissa's very best friends I ask each and every one of you to please donate whatever you feel led to give, any amount, large or small will make an impact in the lives of this wonderful family.  Those of you that know Melissa and T.J know what a great Christian family they are.  They have selflessly given to their church, their community, and have been available to anyone in need.  Now it is our turn to bless this family by being the hands and feet of Jesus.
