A Shocking Discovery In A Trash Bag Changed The Lives Of This Family Forever


The Van Eerden family met Eddie at an orphanage years ago on a trip to Ecuador. To say Eddie’s start in life was cruel would be an understatement. The little boy with Down syndrome was found as a baby by a local carpenter after being stuffed in a trash bag and left to die next to a dumpster.

When Eddie’s eyes met Mrs. Van Eerden’s, it was a moment she describes as “love at first sight.” She instantly knew she had to do everything in her power to adopt Eddie.
