We are praying for you and your precious baby!



Oh Kirsten! I'm so sorry! I will be praying. "The righteous cry out, and the Lord hears them; he delivers them from all their troubles. The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit."
Ps 34:17-18

Kimberly Folgore

We are keeping you and your baby in our prayers. I went through something similar a few weeks ago with our baby, and I know how it feels to be completely devastated. Everything turned out good for us, and I pray that the same will happen for you. I will pray to St. Gerard for you and your baby. You are in our thoughts and prayers,

Kim Folgore


Dear Kirsten,

I'm so sorry to hear about your baby. I, too, have been in a similar situation. Different condition but same scenario. I will pray that you get the love and support that you need. For me, the switch from the regular OB to the high risk OB's at a major medical center made a huge difference. From the doctors down to the receptionist, they were very supportive and simple better skilled to help me through the pregnancy.

I commented once on your blog when Henry was born. You e-mailed me and I've always meant to e-mail you back. I stumbled on your blog once when I was goggling something about homeschooling. We have much in common....Catholic homeschooling moms & similar philosophies. I laughed when I discovered that you too joined CC for the first time this year! All my children are really enjoying it.

Our family does not live in the US. Last year we travelled for about a month and didn't have regular internet access. One evening when we had returned home, my husband heard me say, "I need to check and see what my friend Kirsten's up to." He was confused, "Who is Kirsten?"

You are in my thoughts and prayer,

One Blessed Mamma

Praying for you my sweet friend.


Praying for you and your precious baby! Our God is faithful in all things. Praying for that peace that passes all understanding. Lots of Love, Caryn


Thank you for keeping us updated - I know it must be painful to have to do so. We will continue to pray for your family and for the baby.


Oh my! Is that what the little Dominic Pio baby had? Have you followed his story? His bubble was in the front, between the eyes, and just had a successful surgery. Oh, what a cross - we are praying for you and your dear baby!


Like Tiffany, I have been praying and checking for an update. I'm sure this must be so hard to write and share but please know that many prayers are being spoken for you, your family and your baby.


My verification word was "Blessed"!!


Praying for a miracle!! And loving you!!


I've been checking every day waiting for some news. I'm so sorry. This will be a hard road to walk but you've got a powerful God carrying you each step of the way. Your desire to carry this baby in spite of the issues that you know are there will be a witness. I'm praying for strength and comfort for you and your family and a miracle for your baby.

So sorry. :-( We'll keep praying.


Praying for peace of heart for you and your family, and for a miracle for your little unborn one.

Prayer Kirsten for you and your little precious baby.

About Me

  • Hi, my name is Kirsten. I am married to my best friend and we have nine awesome children including our little saint in heaven, Thomas Joseph. We are Catholic, loving, living, and learning about our faith every day. We just moved to a fixer upper farm here in beautiful Kentucky. We also homeschool some of our children. I really enjoy COFFEE, reading, gardening, running, and knitting. I try to enjoy, laundry and cleaning bathrooms and sweeping floors. But what I really love is to be home, with my husband and children, living this life. This blog is where I write about the good stuff (mostly). Thanks for stopping by!

Prayer to St. Joseph

  • PRAYER TO ST. JOSEPH THE WORKMAN Composed by Pope St. Pius X O glorious St. Joseph, model of all those who are devoted to labor, obtain for me the grace to work conscientiously, putting the call of duty above my natural inclinations, to work with gratitude and joy, in a spirit of penance for the remission of my sins, considering it an honor to employ and develop by means of labor the gifts received from God, to work with order, peace, moderation and patience, without ever shrinking from weariness and difficulties, to work above all with purity of intention and detachment from self, having always death before my eyes and the account that I must render of time lost, of talents wasted, of good omitted, of vain complacency in success, so fatal to the work of God. All for Jesus, all through Mary, all after thine example, O Patriarch, St. Joseph. Such shall be my watchword in life and in death. Amen.

A Considered Childhood by Elizabeth Foss

  • As much as I am able, every day, I will ensure that my child will: * Live the Liturgy * Experience loveliness * Breathe deeply: Fresh air and exercise * Serve others * Listen to, contemplate, and exchange ideas. * Develop expressive skills. * Practice logical reasoning. Math. * Receive focused attention and affection
