Are there people in your life that you look up to .... that you think of as your heroes? To me, heroes are those people that have the capability to see beyond our earthly moments. They have a God given perspective that is eternal. Today I came across two beautiful heroes. They are the parents of a beautiful little baby boy named, Eliot. Eliot had Trisomy 18 (T18) or Edwards Syndrome. Eliot's parents saw him as a Child of God, a gift from Heaven, a Blessing.

Get your tissue, and be inspired by the courage, faith and hope of these parents. They chose not to abort their little one and were blessed by the Lord's love and 99 precious days with sweet baby Eliot.

forever families
a life with hope , purpose & meaning
eternal joy
