Because I'm an Idiot Too.

Just like momofonefornow, I'm an idiot too.

Watch this if you don't mind crying. It's a video made of the 99 days of life lived by Eliot, a boy born with Trisomy 18. The video is narrated by some of the many letters his dad wrote to him and accompanied by lots of video and pictures of his miraculous 99 days here on earth.

I must really be an idiot because I'm confused why everyone else is calling themselves idiots..is it because they watched something that knew would make them cry..or what?..:/

OMG Im an idiot too. I thought I could handle that.....boy was I wrong ;( That poor family. I think it made it worse for me that the father was telling the story. I am so thankful for what I have.

HUGE IDIOT HERE!!!

I cried when I first saw the balloons being released into the sky.

I heard about Elliot from another blog. So I knew about it when I hit the link. I was prepared for the story, but still should not have watched it but I did. OH MY LORD tears streaming down my face. I used to be an "easy" crier, now it takes even less. That is so sad, tears are still rolling down my face.

I saw this on Oprah . . . cried uncontrollably. I wish I had gotten some kind of warning first.

Isn't this the saddest and yet most amazing video ever? I saw this on Oprah the other day. Those parents are so strong and it was amazing to listen to them talk about this. If only there were more people in the world like them...
