Gabriel Strong Karpenko
Gabriel Strong Karpenko June 6, 2018 At 26 weeks, our Gabriel was diagnosed with Prune-Belly syndrome; which caused damage to his kidneys and heart, and his lungs were not able to form. His heart diagnosis later showed stronger and hopeful. Into his 29th week gestation and as the cardiologist explained, Gabriel would not need open heart surgery. With renewed strength and hope we prepared for possibly a tough couple of years, but the Lord also put it on our hearts to prepare for Gabriel’s passing as well. Through the difficult moments and the hard to bear news, the Lord taught us much through Gabriel. To accept what He gives as good, to be grateful for what we have, and to love and cherish each other and our children. Gabriel has been prayed over and loved. He has brought many of us together in prayer and care. We will see you soon our little angel.
