    I left the hospital this morning feeling inspired and uplifted. My newest sister is beautiful and perfect. What an angel!!

    And her mommy.. WOW! I have never seen a woman look so beautiful after childbirth.

    Dad, your sprit is contagious. Thank you for being the constant for all of us.

    Claire Hope is a lucky little lady to have this strong, tenacious family. She is a true Cox, disregarding the odds to share her life with us. And how lucky we are! AMEN, how BLESSED we are!

    This day is a milestone in my life, and I am proud to be part of this steadfast family.

    Last night I rememberbered something lovely that happened at school. The students know what is going on. There were morning and afternoon prayers over the intercom for Emily, Claire, and their family. In addition my phone was left on so that I could receive news about my beloved niece and her very special parents. The phone happened to ring as the students were changing classes. My students coming in were so sweet, quiet, and courteous, allowing me to listen carefully. They told me they knew as soon as they came out of the door of the other class that I was getting news because all the 6th graders waiting in the hall were standing quietly, hands folded, praying. How beautiful!

    Thank you so much for sharing your story. You and your family are truly an inspiration. God works in mysterious ways, and He has given this beautiful baby girl to you for a reason. I believe you realized that reason when you decided to share your story, your struggles, and, most of all, your faith. We should all be so lucky. I will carry you all in my heart and my prayers, and I shall think of Claire often when I look into the faces of my own beautiful boys. You have made sure that her life will make a difference - it already has.

    I am friends with Matt & Ginny Mooney and they referred me to your site. I understand from them that Claire may be a potential future girlfried for Eliot.

    What a beautiful baby girl God made for you! Isn't it sweet to share God's grace & goodness with people you would never know otherwise, except through internet?

    Just wanted you to know that a fellow christian in Arkansas is thinking of you, praying for you and looking forward to seeing what great things God does in your lives through Claire.

    Got your site from Eliot Mooney:)
    She is BEAUTIFUL!!! Funny how these computers work and how you can reach out and touch people without ever meeting them! My family will certainly add your beautiful baby girl to our daily prayers for Eliot.

    I shared this prayer with Eliot Mooney today also. It comes from my calander called "Praying for our Children" where you pray a different prayer each day :) Treasure every moment.

    Uncle Billy and Aunt Tammy,
    What a beautiful gift the Cox family was blessed with yesterday! The strength, faith, and grace you two have shown through all of this has been inspirational. She truly is a gift from God that has touched all of our lives. You are and will continue to be in my thoughts and prayers.

    Carrie, John, Emily, and Camille
    The special relationship that you share is one of security, love, and strength. Claire Hope has the most amazing sisters and brother that one could have and she learned that yesterday when she met the four of you. I am praying for the each of you and thinking of you constantly.
