Would it be possible to correct my typos in the title?
Should be "Defying" and "Odds". Sorry about that.
Democrat response: "Quick! suck the baby's brains out before it is too late."
They must really hate these stories about babies being able to survive at younger and younger gestation.
BABIES are SO CUTE ! (Well most of them anyways! )
I hope he has no long term health effects, hopefully everything goes smooth.
Clearly, the GE 3-D ultrasound pictures have them rattled. The little babies that they claim feel no pain when their limbs get ripped off, can be seen kicking, feeling their own face and sucking their thumb at 3 months.
Must be the second or third smallest.
My youngest neice was born 2 months early and 2 pounds - and she's a viable wonderful child today.
I won't get in the argument of abortion - but the medical community has provided ways of preventing birth for years, and there is of course the dimwit dreading "no sex" that helps out too.
This child is loved and wanted and will thrive under that. Thank you Beversmom for posting it. I missed it when I read my local paper, The Ledger-Enquirer, yesterday on the web.
I'm a first time parent with a 2yr old. For me, hearing and seeing that pulsing blip. "That's the heart." I cried with joy! It solidified my position like a rock to advocate life.
FYI..this Sunday night on National Geographic, there's a program showing the new 4D ultrasound pics of the fetus...well worth watching..
NICU graduate bump
Those parents and baby Malachi are in for a long fight. Prayers that they make it. It can be done. Having a child fighting for his or her life in NICU teaches parents much about life, love and themselves.
make that preemie!
Mariabush, I agree with you. My daughter was in there for two months. Women would gain a greater appreciation for how fragile life is. They also would learn what angels and professionals the NICU staff are. They are amazing.
Yes...it's a 2 hour program. The Tiggywinkle's are watching.
regards, and have a great weekend..
Same here...what struck me was the ferocity of that little heartbeat.
What also stuck me was how my second boy jammed his hand in his mouth 5 seconds after passing out of Mommy. He's 5 months old now and still does it...but he's probably been sucking on that fist for 10 months now....5 months inside Mommy and 5 months outside Mommy.
As we said in the Army, "Same sh*t, different day."
If you think about what abortion is: itis the legalized murder for anyone under 9 months old...whether a baby is inside Mommy or outside Mommy has no bearing on anything.
Now with the all the Preemies, even this 9 month marker is irrelevent. Leaving Mommy at 6,7,8,9 months...what's the difference?
God blesss the family and help this kid pull through.
Ah, that's great.
How about joining in supporting HR-552?
Prayers needed for yet another WONDERFUL tiny baby!!!
What do I have to do?
Thanks for the ping ya goofball!
Protect this little one, Merciful Father, in his daily struggles ... protect his heart and his lungs, every aspect of his tiny body. Give the greatest wisdom to the Doctors and nurses who tend him ... let all gather round as one in their determination to see this child prosper and grow. We seek Your favor upon this little one and his family, O God ... may he grow in grace and in the knowledge of his Lord, the Author of his life. In the Name of Jesus, I pray, Amen ...
A beautiful story. I hope he survives.

MOBILE, Ala. - A medical team at the University of South Alabama's Children's & Women's Hospital have closely monitored the progress of a newborn who weighed only 10 ounces at birth on Feb. 15.
His parents, Phillip and Monica Whitlock, said tiny Malachi Andreas Whitlock is so far holding his own.
"I feel he's got 100 percent chance of survival," his father said.
Ping to the Prayer Warriors!!
Prayers that this little miracle will continue to defy the odds.
Thank you for pinging me, Pegita!
(Trussell is currently away from the computer. Please ping me to any prayer requests until she returns. Thank you!)
Fight and fight heart sweet Malachi...Messenger of God. You have a job on this earth and you must do it so we are praying for you and your recovery. Logan did it and we are praying you will too. God bless your little heart.
Fight and fight hard sweet Malachi...Messenger of God. You have a job on this earth and you must do it so we are praying for you and your recovery. Logan did it and we are praying you will too. God bless your little heart.
Prayers for this tiny baby.
What is the lower limit based on alveolar development?
I join you and the others in prayer for tiny Malachi.
Very soon -- in fact, it's already happening -- the pro-abortion rhetoric will transition from 'it's not a person / just a blob of tissue / etc.' to 'Of course abortion is taking a life, but it's justified by such-and-such circumstances'. The question of where life begins will cease being an issue, because they'll no longer dispute it. The baby-killers will be much more bold and straightforward about their support of murder-for-convenience.
Offering my prayers
I'm not sure, but I think it's around 20 weeks, which was this baby's gestational age.
Prayers for wee little Malachi and his parents as well as the medical staff attending him.
Agreeing in prayer for Malachi and his family!
Lord hold this presious baby in Your protective hands. May he have a full and healthy life. Amen
Mercy! Our prayers certainly are being said this little one and his parents. What a road ahead of them they have. Remember???????????
All of the medical profession tells our family that it was the 24/7 of love, talking to, being there, touching, etc. that brought Logan through it to what he is today. But we really know the secret!.......it was the prayers of so many and the miracle God performed.
We pray little Malachi grows as Logan has.... in every way. Healthy, Happy and a testament to the Love of God.
Hugs to all....

Malachi Andreas Whitlock prayer bump!!!
We are praying for little Malachi in this household.
Dearest Lord Jesus, please protect and make strong this little guy.
Thank you beaversmom for giving us the opportunity to pray for this little creation of God.
Here on the west coast (as far east as OK) there is a burger chain called Carl's Jr. The founder of the company, Carl Kartcher (sp?) was fairly right leaning. Back in the 70's they were always giving away American flag decals. One of my faves back then was a chili chees dog with a BIG Jalapeno on top.
Their current new commercial features a baby in the womb, as viewed on a green screen 3D image. He's yelling at his mom to 'knock it off' with the new spicy burger. The kid yanks on mom's umbilical cord gives a few kicks, the message is 'Hey, I'm a baby in here, I don't need Jalapenos!'
