Prayers for a Friend

Hello friends, family and kindred spirits,

We write tonight to ask for special prayers for a friend of ours who is going through a difficult time right now. Her name is Gracie and she’s currently experiencing heart failure and is waiting for heart transplant.

The story of Gracie’s family is extremely familiar to us. Her parents Ross and Shannon have our deepest sympathy and strongest support. Our hearts broke when we got word that Gracie would need a transplant, but we were joyful to hear that she was successfully listed.

Gracie was born with a complex heart defect, like Isabelle, that carries with it a series of operations and complications. In Gracie’s case, she had her Fontan in April and she got to go home, but she’s been in/out of the hospital all summer and her family is needing to be surrounded with love, thoughts and prayers.

Gracie recently underwent a procedure to repair a heart valve that did seem to offer the level of support that we all had hoped. Her situation has become more serious and she’s going to need a new heart.

I know there are some sleeping giants out there who can really call in some big prayers, please do so for Gracie. She deserves to have that chance at life and she deserves to go home, healthy and happy.

You can keep up with Gracie and her family at by clicking here. They belong to Caring Bridge - like we do.

Please share her story with friends, family, prayer groups, etc.

Thank you very much. You’re awesome.

With lots of love, Chris, Amanda, ^Isabelle^ and Elorah
