99 Balloons

This is a beautiful but sad video called 99 Balloons. It's about a little boy, Eliot, who was born with Trisomy 18, which is a similar to down syndrome but the children usually don't make it to birth. Eliot did, however, and his parents made this video about him. He lived for 99 days, and at his funeral they released 99 balloons signifying his life. It's so sweet.

Why am I posting this on here, you ask? Well, most people would abort a child with special needs like this. But Eliot's parents didn't, and look how much joy he brought them! Every life has a purpose. Look how many people Eliot impacted!



  1. That's so sad! And so sweet! I was almost crying by the end of it!

  2. God Bless you both. my family went through something similiar last summer, though we only had our little grandson for 15 days. we also let off balloons at his funeral. I find much comfort in knowing that we loved our gifts from God with all our hearts while we could here on earth.. while some people would have chosen to not give their babies a chance. You will see your baby again someday.. he is in Jesus arms now.. with Jacob. maybe they are playing with balloons together in heaven. (((Hugs)))

  3. Thank you for your feedback! We're sorry for your loss, but we're not Eliot's parents. Check out our "about us" page to learn more about us!
