A Story Unfinished

by jessicaturner on June 17, 2013

Have you seen the video 99 Balloons about the brief and beautiful life of Eliot Mooney? It’s one of those YouTube viral hits that leaves me a puddle of tears every time I watch it.

Today I’m blogging over on Eliot’s dad’s blog The Atypical Life about a story in my life that is unfinished, in honor of his forthcoming book A Story Unfinished: 99 Days with Eliot. I hope you will join me there.

Fabulous. Now I have to go start all over on my makeup because I am a blubbering hot mess. So touching and so inspiring how they keep their absolute trust in God and in his plan.

Oh Sweet Jessica,
Thanks so much for sharing this. I completely missed this in social media when it came out. The 99 baloons story completely encapsulates why I am pro-life. God’s plans are always greater than we ever asked or imaginined. Also thanks so much Jess (we’re “friends” I can call you that) for the linking to the post about not yelling. That has been on my heart for so long, but I longed to see other moms doing it. Thanks for always sharing your life, Jessica Turner you are a superhero! (cc Lisa-Jo Baker 😉

I have a friend who is living this right now. They are treasuring every day that they have with Brooklyn.
