Robbyn and Josh Blick were expecting a beautiful baby boy. 20 weeks into the pregnancy, they received terrible news. Their unborn son had Trisomy 18, also called Edwards syndrome. The chromosomal condition would result in their son being born with numerous abnormalities, threatening his very life.
On January 21, 2014, Zion took his last breath, surrounded by his loving family. Robbyn said Zion was “peaceful and perfect.”
Robbyn and Josh told their sons that Zion was with Jesus now, comforting them. Robbyn and Josh held Zion for hours, until they had to say goodbye.
Even though Zion was only on this earth for 10 days, he showed his parents, family and doctors was true strength was. Again and again, Zion beat the odds.
Share Zion’s wonderful, but sad, story with others. His strength and beauty should not be forgotten.
