99 Balloons

This movie which is currently circulating around the internet tells the touching story of a baby born with Trisomy 18. This is a fatal genetic condition and most babies with Trisomy 18 will not even survive pregnancy. This child's 99 day life on earth was truly a miracle.

This story also touches close to home for me as I know a young Christian couple who are in their third trimester of pregnancy and are expecting a baby with Trisomy 18. Despite the pressures of 'modern medicine' to abort they are firmly resolved to do everything they can to protect the life of their unborn child. They are praying for a miracle according to God's will. Please keep them and their unborn child in your prayers.
