please please please pray for this family!!

i got an email from my cousin today. here's what she sent:

I have a long-time friend that lost her baby yesterday and is devastated beyond words.
Please keep Elizabeth & Ryan Hornbeck in your prayers as they were expecting their third child, a boy, in just 3 weeks. She went in for an ultrasound yesterday and there was no heartbeat so they did an emergency c-section to find that the umbilical cord was wrapped so tightly around his little leg that it cut all oxygen.
I was told that he was perfect. Perfect skin, five pounds 6 ounces, and beautiful. He looked just like his older brother. Elizabeth held him and said her goodbye's, but Ryan cannot cope. Thanks


i cannot imagine what they are going thru. there are really no words.

Prayers abounding... losing a child is something no one should ever have to cope with. My stomach clenches just thinking about this family's loss.
