Adahlia’s Birthday and Independence Day Prayer Drive

Update:  While we didn’t receive a miracle cure for Adahlia on her first birthday, we are still inviting sentiments of love and health for Adahlia.  Please feel free to offer your prayer for her here.   (For posterity’s sake, I have left the original message below.) 

Thank you for your love and support!!!


In just a few weeks, Adahlia will celebrate a huge milestone: her first birthday. More than anything, I want her gift to be the gift of health. In the hope of rallying her energy to the frequency in which she will no longer need blood transfusions, I am calling for prayer, love and light. By July 3, 2013, I hope to collect 81 prayers and expressions of love on this page. With your prayer and love, may her first birthday be a day of transformation, and Independence Day mark the day of her independence from transfusions.

Thank you to all the beautiful people who send their love, energy, and light!

PS:  Why 81? In ancient Chinese culture, numbers had yin and yang significance. Evens are yin, odds yang. 9 is the highest yang number, and so it is associated with greatest abundance and growing energy. 9×9, or 81, is symbolic of the highest possible yang energy, of ever-expansion.  As 8+1 equals 9, there are actually 3 nines in 81, making it a trinity of 9’s… and trinities are considered an especially sacred number in many traditions.

  7. Prayers, love, and light for all of you as you look forward to this happy milestone. I’d like to send special intentions for Erika and Adahlia. I believe that the connection between mother and child is as strong and significant as Erika describes. Thus, I wish that her healing process be Adahlia’s as well and that Erika’s renewed vitality will be shared with Adahlia in both resumed physical closeness and in the milk Erika provides, as well as love and laughter in their family home.

  10. Blessings to babies
    Born with a wound.
    To whom do they go,
    To find their clues?
    After much love
    Out of the womb
    They crawl normally
    Across the room.
    May they find on this Earth
    Their peace, their love, their home.

  11. Sending my prayers to Joe, Erika, and Adahlia. May God protect you all and look down upon Adahlia with healing hands….

  12. You were once a little seed
    And may you some day become a tree
    With your feet upon the earth
    And your face turned to the sun
    May you grow
    May you blossom
    May you dance in the wind

    Much love from Erica Z
