Well, Mooney family - today God has immensely blessed you all and the rest of us that you have allowed to share in your joy. Hazel is so beautiful! And, is made even more beautiful as I see the reflections of Eliot's mouth and nose in her. I cannot express to you the joy in my heart today in celebrating God's goodness in all things - things happy and sad, understood and mysterious. PRAISE HIS NAME!! We love you all - Matt, Ginny, Eliot & Hazel ;)... love, the martins

Congratulations on the birth of your beautiful daughter. I just finished watching your lovely youtube video. I wasn't as strong as you both were when I lost my child. May God continue to bless your family.

clevergirljc said...

Dear Matt and Ginny, After watching your interview on Oprah on Tuesday, I was compelled to find the video on Youtube to show my fiance'. We both cried when we watched it. At church the next night, our church family said a prayer for your baby girl, little did we know that you had already given birth to her. I pray that you three are all well and the memory of her big brother will always live strong and faithful in all you guys do. God Bless and keep us updated on the family! Thank you for sharing your story! From a mom in northwest Tennessee, Julie.

Allison said...

You are absolutely amazing! Your video of Eliot was posted in a Cafemom group and it truly inspired us all! Congrats on your beautiful baby girl!

Congratulations on your baby girl. Isn't the Lord good? I was deeply touched by your video dedication to your son Eliot. I have a 4 month old son and I wa feeding him and crying while watching the Oprah episode. True Christians are known by the way they handle grief and I am so thankful that your story has been told. Your family is a shining light in this world. thank you.

congratulations Matt and Ginny. Hazel is lucky to have 2 wonderful parents.
I have 2 children and my 3rd recently passed away on Sept 26/08 in utero (16 weeks). We were on the road to genetic counselling and knew there was an issue from the beginning.
I want to say I was very moved and felt connected to you when i saw 99 Balloons. Thank you for sharing so much of yourselves. It helps me to overcome some issues I am trying to deal with.

Hello Mooney family--all 4 of you!

Yesterday, my pastor shared your story about Eliot during her message. Needless to say, there were quite a few wiping away tears. I just had to come and find out about Eliot's new sibling--a girl! How thrilled all of you must be.

I continue to be amazed by God's amazing Grace. Thank you so much for sharing your story.

God Bless all of you
