Baby Amir needs your prayers
This has been a very challenging year for Sarah and her sweet son yet she is still overflowing with thankfulness to Be’ad Chaim and our generous donors for all the love, support and prayers she and her family have received during the past year. It truly made a huge difference in her difficult situation.
It was a blessing to have a first birthday party for Amir in our office last week. Sarah is a terrific baker and many moms and staff enjoyed her homemade cakes, and celebrated Amir’s life.
Since precious Amir’s birth, doctors observed that he had various problems with his development, as well as heart defects which require surgery. All were concerned for his future. Since his birth, we have included Amir in our weekly Monday prayer letter which goes out to over 700 locations around the world. Amir can already crawl, stand and walk a little when holding onto things. He is able to eat regular food and he is growing well. Amir is such a sweet and lovely boy. He is always smiling and loves babbling and trying to speak. We are convinced that it is these prayers of the saints that have caused Amir to flourish.
We would be grateful for your prayers for his upcoming heart surgery, scheduled for mid-January, which is meant to repair two holes in his little heart. They are currently waiting for a specialist from the center of the country to return from his trip abroad to do the surgery. Please pray that everything will go well and for the Lord to completely heal this beautiful boy.
Unfortunately, Sarah’s boyfriend turned out to be very abusive and violent towards her. She had to escape from him and live in an apartment for battered women. Now she and her boyfriend are officially separated and are not in contact. Recently, she moved into her own apartment, together with her five year old daughter and little Amir.
Sarah can’t work because of Amir’s health issues. Please continue praying for grace and strength for her, too. She is receiving income support from National Insurance and an allowance for her two young children. Sarah was receiving a disability allowance for Amir but it has been stopped until it is known for sure what his long term prognosis will be.
