99 Balloons

I was doing some research on Edwards’ Syndrome and came across this YouTube clip. It is quite remarkable–a very well done video narrated by Eliot’s dad. I couldn’t help but be impressed by this young couple who handled an unexpected situation with grace, gratitude, and an awareness that God has a plan. Ginny was about seven months along when she discovered that her baby had Trisomy 18 (aka Edwards’ Syndrome).

I did a little digging and found out that Matt and Ginny just had a new baby, Hazel. You can follow their story at their blog: Matt and Ginny’s blog.

    Hi Suzanne-

    The cover of your book looks great! October 1st is Christina’s birthday so it will be easy for me to remember to look for it. It sounds like an amazing story both for you as an author and for us as readers. It’s so fun to know an author personally!
