Prayer Request in the Wake of a Very Sad Situation

Here's a prayer request for a family that I don't know.

This weekend, while we were away celebrating Paul's graduation, a very sad event occurred in the area surrounding our small town.

A little girl, a few months younger than Sadie, went missing in a county a few hours away and her mom's car was found just on the other side of the county line on Friday morning.

A while later they found the girl's mother walking by the side of the freeway in our county, naked, with her belongings strewn over ten miles. She told the searchers that she didn't remember having a child. Reports say that she is either mentally ill or under the influence of narcotics. Later when she they brought her husband to see her it's reported that she began to remember a bit more.

Yesterday they found the child's body floating in the river.

The mother is being charged with her murder.

Please pray for the family and the rescuers that worked on the search and recovered the little girls body. I can't even begin to imagine how they must be feeling.


  1. It's never fun to lose a child may Mary intercede for prayer and those affected may find some peace of mind.

  2. Oh my goodness. Everything about this situation is so sad. I'll definitely be praying.

  3. This is so sad Cam , keeping the family in my prayers.

  4. I was so glad when we had finally sold out of these newspapers (which had her picture on the front page) at work. I hated looking at them and thinking about that poor little girl.



I love comments and I read every single comment that comes in (and I try to respond when the little ones aren't distracting me to the point that it's impossible!). Please show kindness to each other and our family in the comment box. After all, we're all real people on the other side of the screen!
