ABC Video Link

Here.

If you have the time, please leave a comment at the bottom of the linked page on ABC's site thanking Barbara Gibbs and the team at ABC11 for following our story and helping us to share our good news with others. Barbara is most definitely totally sincere about caring for us and keeping in touch with how my two girls are doing, and we appreciate her very much! It's just as emotional for us to watch these videos as it is for you.

BTW, you can see Tricia's wound from the surgery the day before. And, the nurse holding Gwyneth through much of the video was one of Gwyneth's primary nurses during her four months at Duke!

The video brought tears to my eyes. Especially when you got all choked up. I love when they show Gywneth and she's sticking her tongue out too. :)

So beautifully done! I sit here with tears streaming down my face. It just brings the entire past year full circle, and reminds us of how good God is.
May God continue to hold each of you in the palm of His hand!

Reading your blog and following your story at times you say I'm not sure why so many people follow our story. Well I can only tell you why I follow your story... For inspiration and as an affirmation on my beliefs. Knowing that miracles really do happen. Thank you so much for sharing your miracles.

Standing in the Rain said...

wow! i can't believe it's been a year already. i remember those first days right before the transplant, refreshing your website regularly throughout the day, waiting for those magical words that a match had been found.

your family's faith and determination has been a blessing to me this year. through my own (very minor in comparison) health struggles, i think of all that you guys have gone through and trust the Lord a little more.

i haven't commented much, but i have thought of and prayed for you all often.

happy birthday gwyneth and happy new lungs birthday tricia!

mumameee said...

Beautiful! It captured you guys so well :)

Jessi said...

Tears, tears, tears. Forgive me if my post is hard to read. Your story is so amazing. I can never imagine what you all have been through in just the past year alone. I've been reading your story since Gwyneth was just a couple weeks old and I have prayed and prayed many times for your gorgeous, wonderful little family. You truly have experienced many miracles, and you deserve it. I am so thankful that you share your story with us. I always update my husband on the latest, and will talk about you to anyone who will listen! I watched all three videos and was in tears with each. God bless you, Trisha and Gwyneth!

Sara said...

Your "normal" is such a beautiful story. Thanks for letting God use you.

chopstix said...

what a sweet story. it is so awesome to see mainstream media not shying away from "God speak" and miracles. kudos to the reporter, and thank you for being so transparent. your story has been such an inspiration to many, and always, always God-honoring.
blessings to you, and as the anchor said, smooth sailing and blue skies fo you.

Mrs. Dan said...

I emailed her since it was taking too long to get a comment window. Must have been all my fellow CCFH friends. ;) She actually e-mailed back. I was shocked! :)

Just beautiful and heart melting. I forgot how small Gwyneth was until seeing her with your hand. What a miracle your two girls are.

Love, Laurie
