WATCH: Baby Zion's 10-day life left family and friends with a lifetime impression

When Josh and Robbyn Blick were pregnant with their fifth son they received some devastating news.

Doctors told the couple their son, Zion, had developed Edwards syndrome, or Trisomy 18, while in the womb. Edwards syndrome is a rare genetic disorder where a baby forms three 18 chromosomes instead of the usual two.

According to the Trisomy 18 foundation , less than 10 percent of babies with the disorder live to see their first birthday.

Baby Zion lived 10 days with the condition. He passed away Jan. 21.

The family wanted to capture every moment they spent with Baby Zion. 

 

This video was created containing nearly every moment of Baby Zion's life.
