During Little Tait's time at the NICU Tait and Lauren were approached by social workers, informing them that, because of their son’s low birth weight Medicaid would automatically cover their hospital bills in full and contribute to meals, lodging, transportation, and any future therapies. While it was a tempting option to just sign over their son’s substantial bill to the government programs, Tait and Lauren stood firm on their pre-marriage commitment not to accept government welfare, but to seek to cover the costs on their own with help of the Lord and through private support.
"We now have less than 30 days to reach our June 4 deadline. The Lord has blessed us greatly in the past few weeks, especially, and we now have over $25,000 toward our $50,000 goal."
Little Tait now weighs a solid 14 pounds, 11 ounces - more than 90% of 27 week preemies are usually at his age! God's abundant grace and mercy is a wonder to see!
