It made the national news---the heart-wrenching story of two parents struggling to cope with the death of their firstborn son from Trisomy 18, a rare genetic disorder. In this moving memoir, Mooney chronicles the 99 days he and his wife, Ginny, spent with Eliot and shares how they experienced God's goodness during their painful journey---and beyond.
Eliot wasn't supposed to make it to full term.
At thirty weeks into the pregnancy, Matt and Ginny Mooney were told their child had a genetic disease that made his birth unlikely. If their baby lived, it would be for only hours or perhaps a few days.
But Eliot was born and lived 99 days. And every one of those days was a gift that would change his family forever.
At Eliot's funeral, 99 balloons were released, one for each day of his life on earth. That simple act of remembrance stirred the community and received national attention. Eliot's story has been featured on Oprah and the TODAY show, and a video about his life has been seen by millions on YouTube.
And now, Eliot's father, Matt, recounts his family's remarkable journey in A Story Unfinished, a chronicle of pain, redemption, and God's goodness even in the darkest days.
