    British couple Jordan Wilson and Ashley Challoner hoped to spend a relaxing week in Italy in December before going home to prepare for the birth of their first child. But their plans were turned completely upside-down when their daughter arrived 15 weeks early while they were still on vacation. The Daily Mail reports Matilda Challoner was born on Dec. 3 weighing 1 pound, 6 ounces, less than the weight of an iPad. Born at 25 weeks, Matilda was just one week past the legal abortion limit in England. Earlier this week, doctors determined that Matilda was well enough to travel...

It would ban abortions on unborn children starting at 20 weeks –...

    Please forgive me for essentially plagiarizing an existing title (no I don't work for the NYT), but it's very important to me and what better way to get the attention. Please keep little Connor in your thoughts and prayers. He is the son of a very good friend of mine since college. Due to a medical condition in his mother, he was delivered at 27 weeks. When born he weighed in a 2lbs. 3oz. and is now hovering around 1lb. 14 oz. His lung development so far has exceeded expectations and he did cry upon "removal" but, needless to say,...

    I would like to ask all of you to pray for my friend, Marijon's granddaughter. Her name is Sara Grace. She was born on June 6, 2003, 3 months early. She weighed 1 pound 6 ounces at birth. She has been in neonatal ICU since that time. At 2 weeks of age, she had to have a colostomy for perforated bowel. As you can imagine, she has had ups and downs, but as of last week was weighing a whopping 4 pounds! Last Thursday, they did surgery on her to re-connect her colostomy. On Sunday, she developed an infection, and...
