99 Balloons

I know that a few of the people that follow BabyBerry are no strangers to this video...
I still remember the day, over 4 years ago, when one of my coworkers in the PICU showed me this video for the very first time. 
It literally changed my life forever, by giving me an entirely new perspective-- not only in my career, but in my life as well.

This is the story of Eliot Mooney.

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.
