99 Balloons for Eliot Mooney

Okay, folks I am warning you that this will make you cry when you watch it. I will guarantee it...especially if you have children! I would bookmark this page and come back when you are alone so you can watch it in its entirety.
Do not attempt to watch this at work, you will have to
excuse yourself to the restroom to gain composure afterword!!!
Its a very powerful and moving.
I saw this over at Alexis' Ramblings From Life.
Thank goodness she had a tissue warning posted there.
This video helped me to put my feelings into perspective tonight!

HERE is a link to Matt & Ginny's page...his courageous parents!

Such a beautiful tribute to their son. Thank you for linking it and also thank you for posting their info. I was hoping to find it somewhere.

Sad, I wouldn't have had this courage to fight for a hopeless life and then for nothing. Makes me think when I had to choose between an abnormal baby or a new pregnancy. I choose the latter !

I would not call Eliot's life "hopeless" Gattina. I think that his life was filled with hope...his parents are very courageous folks from what little bit of their blog that I have had the opportunity of reading. Their story is very amazing to me and I could not imagine just throwing his 99 days away. He was their son and no matter what abnormality he had, I can't imagine chosing to not have him or to call his life hopeless.

You warned me but I watched anyhow. Now I'm sobbing. That is such a beautiful reflection they created of their sons life.

Yup, you were right, lots of tears. What a beautiful video. It must have taken so much courage to make that. Thanks for sharing it with us.
