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 😉
Thank you for your kind words!
I have a friend who is living this right now. They are treasuring every day that they have with Brooklyn.
