Back in the days a few years ago when CHERUBS used a listserv instead of our new forums we used to post weekly prayer requests and often posted quotes on our posts, site, newsletters, etc.
Now, we have decided to start posting them again on our blog, forums and other sites. There can never be enough prayers and well wishes for these precious babies!
