99 Balloons

For those of you who haven’t seen this video, you must click here and watch it.  It is called 99 Balloons and is a video put together by a couple from Fayetteville, Arkansas, regarding their son, Eliot, and his diagnosis of Trisomy 18.  I think the video has been out for a while, but I just learned about it this week.  I think it has changed the way I look at each and every day.  This couple is truly inspirational!

  1. Wow. …Just, wow.

    I’d never seen that before. Amazing parents. Such a testimony to God’s love and grace, and to the sanctity of life.

    Thanks for posting it.

    Apparently they were on Oprah on Halloween, talking about Elliot’s life. I can only imagine what a powerful witness that was, and to such a large audience. Man. I’m sorry I didn’t find out about it ’til too late to watch.
