Love and Hope for all Children

After seeing this video on the Oprah show about miracle children, I was just so moved at the strength and courage of little Eliot who wasn't even supposed to live. Such a beautiful baby with a will to fight for his life :) If you have a minute, turn on your volume and listen to Eliot's father read the letters he wrote to his little boy from the time he was in him mother's womb.

At Etsy Cottage Style we have been making pages for a collaborative book called "Love and Hope for our Children" and it will be auctioned on Ebay to raise money for a Children's Cancer Society. So I thought this little video would inspire us all to do even more for the little Angels in the world.

Blessings...
Lynn

We take so much for granted and yet, we recognize that having healthy children is a gift.

Thank you for sharing this video Lynn and thank you to Jewel who is behind this Love & Hope book.

Each day is Gods gift to us, so live it with dignity and love.
The parents of Eliot have truly shown us theirs.
