Update: Nathan doing well!

There’s an update on Marcela’s story. Their baby Nathan Dorje made it through the delivery, and his health is defying the odds and doctors’ expectations. He’s breathing and feeding by himself.

If you want to help, I believe Heather is still collecting donations, or just send prayers or good wishes their way. Congratulations to Marcela, Owen, and your baby–we’re all rooting for you.

  1. Well this is some good news and the babby looks very cute. 🙂

  2. Donate a link??? Is’nt this SERP manipulation?

  3. Good morning Matt

    Maybe the case of baby Nathan Dorje inspire you to install AdSense on your blog and donate the revenues to similar cases, for example 😉

  4. Total odds = (0.00000000005) or 1 : 20,000,000,000 chance

    That is truly a Miracle ♥

  5. Excellent news! An amazing outcome.

  6. Yay! Thanks for the update, Matt.

  7. Amen, truly an answer to prayers. I’m very glad that her son made it out safely.

  8. It’s real nice to see ‘business as usual’ take a back seat to bigger problems. Keep on praying!

  9. Hi Matt:

    I have a 10-year old son who is healthy. It is important for me to remember what a blessing his health is – particularly when he is making his Mom crazy.

    I did both. The prayer part might not be helpful. Heck, I was thrown out of the ODP four or five times.


  10. Today’s technology is both a blessing and a curse. My second daughter was diagnosed with dwarfism along with several other problems including Down’s Syndrome.

    After a battery of tests on this unborn child, it seems that the lab technician made transposition error when writing a couple of measurements.

    At age 6 she’s reading like a third grader and in the 90th percentile for height. We call her stretch.

    Good news for Marcela and Nathan!

  11. Was stretch raised on affiliate marketing dollars? (don’t get me wrong, very nice story dude, angel, miracle type stuff indeed.)

    From Threadwatch:

    Right now, I’m collecting links to her affiliate site so she can make money online and still afford to work with Nathan.

    See “How internet marketers do charity”

    Sorry, it just kind of gave me a chuckle, that’s all, relax, take a breather. 🙂

  12. I think we just sometimes lose sight of who is altimately in charge. It’s by God’s grace that our children are doing well. I pray they will all live long and properous lives.

  13. Good to see this child making his own way into the life, despite the predictions.
    I hope Nathan is going to be as well as he wants to.

    Thank you for sharing this story of Nathan with me !
