99 Balloons Video

Here's a brief description from the website:

Eliot was born with an undeveloped lung, a heart with a hole in it and DNA that placed faulty information into each and every cell of his body. However, that could not stop the living God from proclaiming Himself through this boy who never uttered a word.

In the midst of heartbreaking tragedy, the Mooney family found the presence of God strengthening, comforting, and guiding them. Their story reminds us to seek God and endure our struggles rather than blame Him for our hardships.

I see so much heartache working in the NICU. But also so many miracles. This is an amazing testimony that God is so much more capable than any limitations placed on Him by modern medicine. I am encouraged by the faith of these parents. What an inspiration!
