3 week count down

Well, Time is almost here! Elijah Christian Wright will be born on February 9th,2010.
After meeting with the neonatal team and doctor Ross again today we feel like this is the best thing for Elijah. We have prayed fervently that God would order our steps and He has proven over and over again that he has indeed gone before us. Dr. Mesa was wonderful and I believe God gave him the exact words I needed to hear this morning. We are taking Elijah out 3 weeks early because of the low fluid factor. They are concerned for his cord getting pinched as he continues to grow in such a confined space. If his lungs have developed to be the right size, the aerola can certainly develop on a ventilator. We will also be meeting in the next week with the urologist at Children's as well.
In the natural, the odds are stacked highly against Elijah's survival, but we operate in the supernatural where we know that "Elijah is more than a conqueror"(Romans 8:37) and that "God will perfect that which concerns Elijah and he will not forsake the works of His own hands." (Psalm 138:8)We are fully believing that God has breathed the breath of Life into Elijah's lungs and that His living water has sustained him in the womb. We claim that "God has given His angels charge over Elijah and that they are holding him up so that he won't even hurt his foot on a stone." (Psalm 91)
Thank you all so much for praying us through this. Please keep it up! Please pray for wisdom for the doctors and nurses, pray "no weapon formed against Elijah will prosper in Jesus' name, and nothing shall harm him by any means,"pray that God will continue to heal his chromosomes,bladder,kidney's and urethra and that his lungs will fully develop. You guys have been amazing support for us and we are truly greatful. May God richly bless you for the time you have invested in praying for Elijah and our family.
Much Love-Kelli

  1. I love you sweet girl! I am scheduled to work that day and can't wait to wrap my arms around you. Your friendship has been a blessing to me from the time I met you as a little girl til now. Elijah is so lucky to have such a special Mom who has loved & prayed for him from the second his heart first began to beat. You have touched so many lives already by allowing us to take this journey with you. I pray God's continued healing for Baby Elijah. I also pray for perfect peace for you, Kelli, that your days will be filled with overwhelming comfort and that your nights be filled with sweet sleep. You are loved beyond measure! Andrea Henderson

  6. Hi Kelli - you may not remember me but we were in a Beth Moore study together with Katie Bell a couple years ago when you were actually pregnant with your second baby girl. Taryn is a good friend of mine and had one of our small gruops last semester praying for you and told me about your blog so I've been keeping up. Just wanted to let you know that I'm praying for you and baby Elijah and so many other people that you are probably totally unaware of as well. The Lord is already being glorified by this little baby's testimony! Believing for miracles!

We have friends calling constantly to ask about baby Elijah and friends of friends who are sending up prayers for that sweet baby boy. God is already using Elijah to reach out to so many people and I know that He will continue to use him in so many ways. Praying for you always! Please let us know if we can do anything!

  11. Kelli,
    You do not know me. My name is Jennifer Hill and I live in Troy. I was given your blog address by a relative here in Troy. I will be praying for you and your family this week. My husband and I have found ourselves in a painfully similiar situation. Our Elijah has polycystic kidneys. I would love to talk with you. Praying for a miracle for both of our Elijah's!
