Little Carter was born to My friend, Elise. I don’t remember whether there were any signs during pregnancy, but when he was born, he had to be put on a ventilator to help him breathe. He was on the ventilator for a good while, weeks if not months. Elise was a young, single mom, and the baby’s father, who had promised to be with her, left when the hospital visits became overwhelming.
In her faithfulness, our youngest daughter added “Little Carter” to her prayers. She never missed a prayer. As she prayed for Carter, I prayed for Elise, whose story was a little more complicated for a child to understand.
Over time, Carter was able to be weaned from the ventilator, until he was off of it completely! Praise God!
I was able to continue to share my faith with Elise, and she began to build her confidence as a mother. She continued to work her day job and started her own Mary Kay and Lalaroe business, and it’s been neat to see her flourish as a young women.
To look at Carter now, you’d never know he had such a rough beginning in life. God has brought guy strength and personality to this awesome little boy! I pray His continued blessing on Elise and her family.
