About the time I had actually relaxed all my muscles and started to drift off to sleep, my beeper went off. I’m just getting back now.
A young couple delivered a 23-week baby and wanted her baptized. She lived for about ten minutes after birth.
They’ve known for a couple of weeks that she wasn’t going to make it to term so they’ve done a lot of grieving already. They were sort of in that quiet place where you’ve kind of cried yourself out for a while.
I baptized their first-born daugher, and then said a prayer for letting her go back to God. I think I helped a little. I hope so.
