Fernando De Andrade
Baby Fernando

New Haven-WTNH, Feb. 7, 2002 Updated 10:15 PM) _ An oxford family is racing against time. Thursday was their infant's two-month birthday. But they celebrated the day in the newborn special care unit at Yale-New Haven Hospital. The baby is terminally ill,

And in his two months of life Fernando has never left the hospital, but his parents say he deserves a quality of life most people take for granted.

"I think if we look at people and we say how long are you going to live and do you deserve to go outside, do you get to see the sun, No, I'm sorry you don't cause you're not going to live long enough -- I don't think that's fair."

And it also doesn't seem fair that Fernando is saddled with so many health problems. In addition to SMA, which destroys the nerves that contol movements like swallowing, he relies on a ventilator. Fernando also has congestive heart failure, and the list goes on.

Still, the De Andrades want to bring Fernando home. But the hospital will not release him until they secure 24-hour in home health care. Now the biggest problem finding nurses.

Father, I lift up my prayer to you in thanksgiving for your Son Our Lord and God Jesus Christ in the Power of the Holy Spirit asking you to remember this little child Fernanado and to visit Him with your loving compassion, to send your Word and heal him and to have all of the saints from ages past who were well pleasing to You and the holy angels who serve You to ceaselessly intercede for him now also. Furthermore I ask that You visit his parents and family and increase their faith in You as Healer and Physician of our souls and Bodies, Yahweh Rapha, Adonai our Shepherd and Lord and Yahweh Sabbaoth, King of Kings and Lord of Lords and to remind them that You love the humble and care for the least of these and shower Your blessings on Your people who are in need and who cry out to You, and that Your strength is made perfect in weakness. And what can be more weak than a two month old infant, Lord God? What can be more helpless than the parents who can't do anything to save this child's life but love him and pray? So I'm asking that you let Your glory be known here by healing this tiny child and by letting the whole world see that YOU are a God Who does wonders and miracles. Who is a God like Our God, Great Upon the Earth and Ruler over all thae heavens and all that is. You are our God and we know no other than You and we call on Your Name! Do not forsake us but ome to us speedily and help us ere this child perishes! And I thank you now already because before we call You have heard us and before we come to You You know what we want. You give us abundantly more than we ask in your lovingkindness towards us. Blessed be Your Name for ever and ever of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit now and ever and unto ages of ages Through the prayers of the Belssed Theotokos and all the saints. Amen
