Get to Know: Moriah

Seven-year-old Moriah is a first grader at Holy Name School. She has an infectious personality that brightens every room she enters. She’s funny and enjoys making her friends and family laugh. It’s nearly impossible not to smile in her presence. Like many girls her age, Moriah likes to sing, dance, and play dress-up. She also loves hiking, swimming, and cooking and can even make her own scrambled eggs and oatmeal. Moriah is a Daisy Girl Scout and will play soccer for the very first time this spring. Moriah and her older sister, Mary Margaret, share an infinite bond and a love of boy band One Direction (Harry is Moriah’s favorite!). 

In a letter Moriah’s parents wrote to friends and family members shortly after her birth in the fall of 2005, they expressed their excitement for Moriah’s arrival:
“We want you all to know how truly elated and blessed we are to have Moriah in our lives! Although Moriah's diagnosis was unexpected, we believe that God entrusted us with the love and care of this very special baby. He has a special plan for her and for us! We have so much to learn and look forward to in this very special journey. We're confident that Moriah will teach us some of life's most important lessons!”
