Update from the Valencia family!


So today was a BIG DAY for us!!! I finally got to see & hold our son Michael David for the very first time!!! Yesterday was my Birthday so it was Extra Special to see him today, it is a most welcome gift!!! I am not ashamed to admit that I cried like a baby. There are not many things in life that make your heart skip a beat and well up tears of euphoria in your eyes…holding your newborn child in your arms is certainly one of them. Our Lord is So Very Good!!!

Baby Michael David continues to fight his infection. His weight was a bit down today but we are hoping that turns around soon.

He is so tiny! The pictures really don’t do him justice on how small he is. I got to sing to him and just talk about how much he is Loved. On how so many of you have prayed for him and helped us. He said to say Thank You to you all.

He also heard about his siblings and how they can’t wait to meet him in person and play with him!

We can’t wait to take him home and October 19th can’t come soon enough!

Once again, Thank you for all the continuing prayers, well wishes and help you have so generously Blessed us with. We couldn’t be doing this all without your prayers and help.

May God Bless & Protect us and our families.

Michael David, born at 32 weeks - Update

 Mark and Eva Valencia's son was born early by c-section, and Eva tested positive for Covid. Baby Michael David, in NICU, has been fighting a bacterial infection, but is holding his own. 

The family is grateful for the help received from TVLMS patrons. For those not on the email list, the family has a GoFundMe site where you can help out or just follow the progress. 

Your prayers for the family are appreciated! The road is still very bumpy!

Mark and his family moved here from California recently. They chose Boise in part because of the availability of the TLM, which was been an important part of the relocation decision making process.
