Pray for Rick Santorum’s Youngest Daughter

Via Denny Burk, I just saw the news that Rick Santorum’s youngest (Bella) has been admitted to the hospital for unspecified health concerns resulting from Trisomy 18. It’s a miracle that she’s still alive today, as the vast majority of babies born with the illness die quickly. (Watch an inspiring video about her story here.) However, she does have many complications. Our prayers go out to the Santorum family. Santorum has canceled his scheduled campaigning events for today but hopes to be back by Tuesday, the first primary election (in Florida).

I plan to vote for Santorum even though he may not have the best winning chances. If I can spare the time, I may give my reasons in a longer post later this coming election month.

    I’m not American, I don’t need to vote but if I had to this man would be high on my list. What a beautiful testimony of life!

  2. Yes, I’m a definite fan of Santorum. If he drops out, I have no clue who I’ll vote for.

    Sounds very much like my little brother’s story. I wish people wouldn’t ask people with special needs kids if they’re going to ‘keep’ them. It’s sickening.

    Kudos to Santorum for making the right choice and being at her side instead of campaigning!!

    I just recently (i.e. <30 days) had a granddaughter born with Trisomy 18. She lived 3 full days.
