For my daughter Rebecca to have a 2nd. child without complications

by Marie-Claude
(Tamarac, FL USA)

My daughter's birth was kind of a miracle in itself on June 27, on the feast of Our Lady of Perpetual Help.

I was born August 15, on the feast of the Assumption of the Virgin Mary, and my grandmother July 16, on Our Lady of Mount Carmel feast. We surely are blessed.

My daughter gave birth to my grandson @24 weeks, weighing 1lb.9in. He was born with several ailments, and spent 9 mos. in the hospital after sustaining 2 surgeries. But by the grace of God, He is now a healthy 8yrs.old,and will be making his 1st communion in 2 mos. Despite having been diagnosed last year with a mild form of autism, Cyril is our joy and our miracle kid. It breaks my heart however to see so much pain and sadness on my daughter's face and in her notes.

Also because of all the complications and the money his parents spend to provide him with all the help he needs, and herself dealing with HBP, my daughter is afraid to have a 2nd child. We feel that having another child will help Cyril progress faster in his speech and social behavior, but they're still hesitant.

Several times, they told us they were going to try but after awhile, we don't hear anything about it. I wish I could have a picture of Saint "Gillia' to pray for her for a miracle. You see, she developed HBP after the birth of her baby and I do understand her fears. I myself had ecclampsia during her birth. But, I feel that God willing, she can have a 2nd child without any problems and thus I will die happy knowing that Cyril has a little brother or sister to play with and who could bring joy to their family.

I survived breast cancer twice and would die happy if I knew my daughter is finally happy.

Please pray for them. and help me find a picture of the saint Doctor who sacrificed her life for her baby. Thank you and may God bless you!
