Eliot Hartman Mooney

Born July 20th, 2006 4:59pm
6lb 18 ½ inches

God has answered our (and your) prayers. Eliot is a 4 day old miracle thanks to all our friends and family for their help and support! We are all doing fine and loving life.

We are currently at the NICU where Eliot is doing well and every day is a new adventure for us to treasure. We would love your continued prayers for Eliot’s precious life.

Updates are tough, because every hour is spent at the hospital, but we’ll try to keep them coming.

Matt & Ginny

Tuesday, July 18, 2006


That's right everyone. We will have a baby on Thursday (if not before). We went for our weekly visit and Ginny had progressed to the stage where they want to go ahead and induce on Thursday (July 20). We are super excited and cannot wait to meet her or him. We've got names, we've got a babyseat, and we've got candy bars for me to stuff down my throat in hopes of warding off fainting.

We would appreciate your continued prayers and anxiously await the culmination of many petitions to our Lord.

Many folks (in close proximity) have asked what we want them to do in regards to visiting us at the hospital. We want everyone to know that we would love to see them, however, with this birth comes many unknown circumstances, and our wishes will be determined by the outcome.
All that ambiguity to say...we would love for anyone to come to the hospital that wants to- just understand that seeing us or the baby is not guaranteed. While we would love to share our newest addition with everyone, we may need some time to ourselves.

Thanks for joining in our excitement for the miracle that is this baby.

Updates will follow:)

Anyone can now post. You do not need a blogspot account to do so. Sorry 'bout that.

July 11 Update

Dr. Visit
Today we had the 2nd weekly exam. All went well and not too much has changed. Although, of course, delivery could come at any minute, the doctor seems to think that everything is progressing, but "probably" not this week.

We go to the Dr. again on Tuesday (July 18). We continue to pray and seek the Lord. He continues to give us all we need for each day.

We'll continue to update as baby nears.

Thanks again, for your prayers, calls, and notes. We continue to hope.

July 3 Update

Thanks to everyone who has written, called, and prayed. We cannot express how appreciative we are to you all. We continue to seek your prayers. Folks have let us know that they appreciate the information and would love to be updated. To that end, we anticipate updating the blog as information is known. Again, thanks.

Dr. Visit
Today began the cycle of Dr.'s appointments each week. The appointment went well. Everything is moving along just as hoped. We have been told that we will have a baby by Aug.1 (Ginny's original due date).

Good News
In the good news department, Ginny & Baby are continuing to grow (this is especially good for our situation). Also, each week that passes is closer to term, and many times these babies come early. We are also thankful for our doctors who have been great throughout.

It is a comforting thought to us that prayers, on behalf of this child, have and will rise up to our Father.
