Baier’s fellow journalists, and many other Twitter users, are harnessing the power of prayer, and are sending strength and love to Paul Baier and his loving family.

Raising a Son with a Special Heart: An Interview with Bret Baier

Snip:
Bret Baier's life as a father changed when his first son, Paul, was born with five congenital heart defects a few years ago. The Fox News anchor of Special Report with Bret Baier talks to Parents.com to promote awareness of a common (but rarely detected) birth defect and how he balances parenthood with raising a toddler who has congenital heart disease.

Thanks. My better half told me about this. I didn’t know. So, I posted it here.
Bret is one of the good guys.

After having open heart surgery a couple of years ago, I thought I had it rough. After reading this, I have vowed to never complain again. G-d bless this beautiful little boy with a long, pain free, and happy life. May his heart be as strong as his spirit.

Bret, if you’re reading this.....my 90-year-old dad just got a double by-pass and valve replacement.... and is doing well so far.

It is truly amazing, and a blessing, what the doctors can do, now.

His surgeon said it was divine intervention that the circumstances led him to this with the timing of events. Quite scary, really.

But, he is going to be with us for future days. Telling us stories about his time in the Pacific during WW2, his business propositions, and listening to his Grand-children.

Yes. Prayers for this little guy and all the others who are in the same place tonight. Prayers for all who will need the same care once Obamacare is in full force.

I never mentioned it, nor did I intend to. The thing is, I have found throughout my life that no matter how hard I think I might have it, there is always someone much worse off than I.
Reading this article about this extraordinary little boy has put things in perspective. Eventually, soon, I hope, I will have a new heart. There is so much to live for, still so much to do. But this child has a whole life ahead of him and to think of what he has already been through is almost unimaginable.
Embrace life every single day. Love with all your heart and soul. Never stop believing in miracles. It’s cliche` I know, but true nonetheless.

Thanks - now I can add little Paul and the Baer family on my prayer list. My dad’s brother is 79 and just went through quadruple bi-pass heart surgery and had a stroke at the front end of that surgery. He’s recovering slowly, but prayer works and God hears the prayers of HIS people.
