UPDATE: Baby Ariella's Progress

 There is absolutely nothing worse than hearing of a baby fighting for their life. We have been in constant prayer for my cousins baby Ariella (drowing accident.) I just received the latest update and wanted to continue to ask my Blogging friends for their prayers!

"Ariella (Ari) is still in a coma. Her stomach is bleeding and her heart is working extra hard, but she moved her head today which is an amazing sign!!" 
Keep the prayers coming!

Eva let me know about your prayer requests for baby Arielle and I want you to know that I am praying, praying, praying for her FULL recovery, asking our Lord to glorify Himself through her miraculous healing. My heart goes out to her family and I am asking for His strength and comfort during this time....asking that those who are at their side will witness His peace and comfort, His presence, and His timing in her recovery.

I just read your message over at Love Maegan, I will be praying for her. I am also submitting a prayer request for her on, and hopefully more people can join in and help her recover soon with their prayers as well...bless her little heart.

Seeing the pictures you have posted of this baby in the hospital makes me sick. You should really consider taking them off the internet and your Blog. The more you post and the more exposure this case gets, the worse off the mother will be when she gets Prosecuted for child neglect or possibly even worse depending on what the outcome is. Just a thought Lisa. On a brighter note, you are very pretty.

I want to thank all of you for your prayers, as they are being answered!

I know the picture is upsetting, and it is not meant to be harmful for the mother or baby, but just the show the importance and Power of Prayer. I spoke to the family members to ask if they felt I should remove the picture, as I didn't want to cause any harm or hurt anyone. They felt it was fine, as they themselves are posting pictures.

I also know that this could've happened to anyone of us as parents (I can personally attest to this in my own life.)

It is a tragic accident!

I truly disagree with the Anonymous poster. She is a baby in healing. She is not dead. Where is the faith of our Anonymous poster? My Father has given me a quote my whole life "Don't take counsel from your fears"! Fear comes from a dark place, a place of doubt, one of Satan's tools. Look to the Light the Light of Christ, in Him all things are possible. I challange whoever is upset by seeing a sleeping perfect child in healing to kneel in faith, and ask the Lord to soften their heart before they type. We are all here for one purpose to pray for Ariella! Let's keep our focus and the spirit where it needs to be, thank you Lisa for your gentle response. You are a great example to us all.
