About Sean & Sara

Sean and Sara are the proud parents of two young boys (8yo & 4yo) who are currently expecting the arrival of twins. They live in Maine with Sean serving his country as a full time member of the Maine National Guard and Sara working as a homemaker. They are faithful members of their local church who love Jesus and seek to serve those in their community.  

Their Situation

Early in the pregnancy, their doctor delivered the news that one of their babies (Baby A) was going to be born with significant birth defects which would require support that their local hospital (in Maine) could not provide. The most significant of these defects is OEIS (very rare - 1 out of 200,000 births), but is coupled with club feet and a recessed chin which will cause breathing and feeding issues at birth. This baby also has underdeveloped arms, hands, and fluid in the lungs however the kidneys look good. Baby B appears to be healthy. Both babies will be born by C section and both will be premature, and as a result both are expected to be in NICU for some time. Baby A will require several months of hospitalization with surgeries required in the first year of life and beyond. Due to the specialization required to support the delivery, the neonatal care, and the upcoming surgeries, Sara has been transported +3hours away from home so that she can deliver the babies in Boston.

Their Need

Sean and Sara need a couple things:
  1. Your prayers
    1. Pray for a miracle. We believe that our God is mighty, that He is in control, and that He can make a way where there is no way.
    2. Pray for faith to be strengthened. Pray that the Holy Spirit gives them the faith they need to endure this trial, that they would be strengthened when they are weak, and that their trust in Him would flourish regardless of outcomes.
    3. Pray for unity. Pray that this brings this young couple together. Pray that this brings the Church together as they seek to serve each other and love each other.
    4. Pray that this presents a unique opportunity for God to get the glory. Regardless of the outcomes, may their testimony provide grounds for sharing the gospel.
  2. Your support
    1. Hospital bills for delivery, follow up appoints, check ups, etc will place a burden on this young family. They have insurance, however there will be unplanned costs that they will have to shoulder.
    2. Sean can stay with a 'host' family arranged for by the hospital, however it will cost $30 per day plus parking ($10 / day) and food costs while away from home. Sara is expected to be in Boston for >1mo.
    3. In the event that Baby A doesn't make it, there will be funeral costs.

Please prayerfully considering giving to this amazing young couple as they seek to remain faithful regardless of the circumstance. Even if you can't give, please pray and ask others to pray for them.

Thank you for being a blessing to them in their time of need!

Sean, I had the pleasure of getting to know you very well during this past AT. Your upbeat, positive attitude and hilarious personality kept my spirits up. It must have been tough, especially with the difficulties you and Sara were going through. It must have weighed heavily on your mind. I was happy to hear the news and congratulations to you both on your wonderful additions to the family! Thank you for looking out for me Sean, and I hope this small donation helps you reach your goal! Take care!

Update from Sean (Dad)
September 29, 2019, 9:45 pm

At 4:22 on 9/29/19 Guinevere Faith Farrell took her last breath in my arms. Our eyes are filled with happiness because she is now in our Father's arm's in heaven. Sara and I have been praying since week 15 when the doctors said she would only live two weeks and pass before birth, that we would be able to hold her and kiss her. That day came today. We are foggy and dont really know what to do but our faith and trust in God is strong and we will get through this. I want to thank all of you for the love and support and especially prayers. She may have only been here 4 days but these memories will last forever and Zoey who is still doing good will have Gwen's love and fight run through her. Update on Sara, she is doing ok considering, we are
powerful through Christ. We moved into the Inn at Longwood Medical in Boston. Funeral services TBA.

Babies are here!
September 25, 2019, 4:54 pm

The twins were born early this afternoon - they were premature having been born at 32 weeks. Baby B (Zoe) is stable in the NICU and is breathing with a C-PAP. Baby A (Gwenivere Faith) is intubated and has several issues due to OEIS defect. She is currently stable with lots of doctors working on her. Please keep praying.
