Lending a Hand and Melanie’s Baby Update!

Benji, Melanie, and Baby

Melanie and Baby are in the home stretch before delivery! We’re so grateful Melanie’s made it to 33 weeks, and Baby is staying put. Sadly, though, a week ago, Melanie developed a severe middle ear infection. It has been very painful and made it hard to function. The doctor said the ear infection was likely pregnancy exacerbated, and that on a scale of 1 to 10, hers rated a 9. Yikes! She’s doing much better but still has lingering discomfort.

Mary helped a lot, and Melanie’s schedule allowed Mary to have a plan and things to run smoothly.

We’re grateful to be close to family! Thank you for your prayers for Melanie and Baby! We’re excited about another blessing.


“For thou hast possessed my reins:
thou hast covered me in my mother’s womb.”
Psalm 139:13
