Eliot was born with Trisomy 18, a genetic disorder with a very low survival rate. His parents were told before he was born that he was not likely to be born alive, and if so, would not have a long life.
Regardless, his parents happily anticipated his birth and poured all the love they could muster on him while giving the chance. Each moment was precious, and they cherished each one until the time of his passing. And even if the time he spent on earth was short, Eliot made a lasting impact on the lives of his parents, and on his surrounding community.
