  12. I was introduced to your story via my friends Matt McCaslin and Sara Montgomery when they posted your TV interview on Facebook. I have been praying, praying, praying ever since! I have also shared your story and extended the prayer network. Anna Joy is breathtakingly beautiful and your family is an amazing example of strength, faith and love.

  19. Hi I heard about your story from your Aunt Jamie. What a beautiful picture of your beautiful little girl. I pray for you every day since I heard about this and have been so touched by your faith and strength. I pray that everything goes well and your daughter is most definately a wonderful gift from the Lord. Continue to have faith, I wish the best for all of you.

  21. Matt and Alissa, I am sharing this link with you and pray that it will be an encouragement. Little Ella Louise's mama is my daughter's best friend and she and her husband went through a similar situation just over a year ago.
    I pray that God will continue to cover you both with the grace and mercy and peace that you need during this time.
    I would be happy to get Crista and Eric's phone # for you, or have her call you if and/or when you would like. BTW, I work for your eye doctor, Rick Baxter at Vision Health and we all are praying for you and "your" miracle baby.

  22. Blessings on Anna and the both of you! I went to school at NNU with Katie and heard of your story through mutual friends. I have read your blog over the past few days and was covered with chills as I read of Anna's birth today. I rejoice with you! What a little miracle! Thank you for the reminder of how precious life is and to be joyful in all things. I have hugged my children a little tighter the past few days realizing what a miracle every child is and what a blessing from God. We hold them in our hands for such a short time and we should be thankful for each moment. Anna is a miracle and has already touched so many lives, including mine. Thank you for sharing her/your journey!

  28. I cam across your story from many friends from Nampa on Facebook. My husband and I were in the same situationm although we didn't know until the day our son was born. They missed it on the ultrasounds. I know your joy, pain, love, suffering, all of the emotions that you are feeling right now. Praying for you and your beautiful Anna. Erin Nielson Ebright

  29. We don't know each other, but your prayer chain reached me and your family's faith has touched my life. You don't need me to tell you how many people are praying for you and your children. The precious moment captured in this picture brought me to my knees...God is powerful, mighty, and wonderful. My prayer for you today is for rest. May you revel in the wonder of your sweet baby girl.

  32. Such a miraculous moment captured - thank you for sharing the gift! I've only known of your story thru a facebook friend's post on Wednesday, but I have added my prayers to those that were already coming in....Sweet little Anna Joy has pulled this world together in a way that not even the most charismatic of communicators could - that in itself is a huge blessing. I'm continuing to pray and eagerly await your blog posts of her progress.

  33. This is truly one of the most beautiful, most precious moments I've ever seen captured in an image. No doubt this is among many priceless photos of your beloved daughter that you will always cherish. I'm so deeply sorry for the pain and loss you feel, being separated from Anna Joy. What a gift to know that she will greet you in heaven someday. Until that day, you are being loved and prayed for by more supporters than you could even imagine. You are so loved. God hold you close in his loving embrace and give you His peace.
