Prayers for family here in OKC metro area--UPDATE!

There is a family here in the nw metro area of okc that really needs prayers. The mom is pregnant nd in critical condition, the 7 year old is also in critical condition, the 3 year old is missing, and the 15 month old died lastnight. No word on if/how the dad is doing. They are resuming the search for the toddler this morning.

I'm updating this from my phone, our internet is out. Hopefully will be on when I get off work and can respond to some posts.

UPDATE--
They found the missing 3 year old this morning. He was washed up on a lake near their home.

Please continue to keep this family in your prayers.

Being so far removed from the "lower 48" it is oftentimes hard to relate to these natural disasters. Things like this don't happen in AK; earthquakes yes, but generally with such little destruction. The closest we come is last year we had more than our fair share of airplane crashes, including two military planes.

I'm very glad the article had a number for people to contact to help donate, this I will be doing for sure. This family will be in my thoughts for a long time to come. Thank you for keeping us updated.

Thank you so much!

I don't know why, but this just hit me really hard driving home from work yesterday. I just cried and cried and when I came home and saw DS, I cried even more.

I just can't imagine loosing 2 children, having 1 barely hanging on and trying to muster the energy to save the life growing inside of me.
