Levi Matthew {The Miracle Baby}


She went into labor one month early, but complications arose and she had to have an emergency c-section.  Levi was born on April 1, 2014.  At some point little Levi did not receive oxygen to his brain; and even though he was born with a heart beat, he needed a ventilator to help him breath most of the time.  The doctors prepared Kate and Tim for the worst and they were told that Levi probably wouldn’t survive.  He was put in a cooling cap to help his brain heal.  Through this whirlwind of tough news, Kate and Tim knew that prayer could change things and as soon as people found out, they were surrounded by hundreds of prayer warriors petitioning for Levi’s survival.  In a matter of two days they were told that a full recovery was now possible! Even with so much uncertainty in their own lives, they began asking everyone to also pray for other babies and families in the hospital with them. Their rock solid faith shined so bright as they counted their blessings, shared scripture and shared God’s love with those around them. God has a perfect plan for this little guy and it started the moment he was intricately formed in his Kate’s womb.  No matter what the outcome could have been for Levi and what is in store for his life, we know that “You, O Lord, are a God merciful and graciousslow to anger and abounding in steadfast love and faithfulness.” {Psalm 86:15}  I’m so thankful prayers for Levi’s survival were answered.  On Thursday, April 17th 2014, this family was rejoicing in the news that they could take Levi home.  Thank you, God, for this miracle baby!
