99 Ballons – Eliot’s Story

Eliot was born with an undeveloped lung, a heart with a hole in it and DNA that placed faulty information into each and every cell of his body. However, that could not stop the living God from proclaiming Himself through this boy who never uttered a word.

    To Eliots parents: How courageous of you to make this beautiful tribute to your son’s life. I too have a son with disabilities and without a doubt his existence has changed me and many he has met beyond the reach of a book or movie. God does give and take away and they are all on loan and entrusted to us. It is a great maturing process to accept the time frame God gives for them to impact as he wishes. We are just the temporary custodians of their God given lives. Many Blessings to you……..have you read A Grace disguised??? Life transforming book.
