On our show Miracle Children with Celine Dion, Celine and Oprah introduced the stories of miracle children from around the world. One of those stories moved just about everyone to tears.
Eliot was born with Trisomy 18—a genetic disorder with a very low survival rate. In a video tribute to their son, Matt and Ginny celebrated every day of his life. Though the lifespan for children born with Trisomy 18 is just five to 15 days, Eliot lived for a joyous 99 days.
Watch the moving video celebrating Eliot's life.
"As Celine, the audience and I watched, we could barely keep it together," Oprah says.
