(PIX11) — When Robbyn and Josh Blick discovered during pregnancy that their son had a fatal genetic abnormality, the couple decided document as much of his short time on Earth as possible.

Zion Isaiah Blick lived for only 10 days, but his parents are keeping his memory alive with social media.

About 20 weeks into her pregnancy, Blick learned her son had the disorder known as Edwards Syndrome, a genetic condition with a low survival rate, USA Today reports.

Zion weight 4 pounds 7 ounces when he was born on Jan. 11.

He passed away on Jan. 21, but the beautiful photos have taken on a life of their own, captivating hearts around the world.

“I want you to know that you didn’t have to be big and tall or even loud for us to notice you,” his father said in the video. “You did more in your 10 days on Earth than I could ever hope to.”

Josh, a pastor and his wife are devout Christians and say Zion’s short life taught them about God’s love and hope after death.

“My sweet precious Zion, you are my gift,” Robbyn said in the Vimeo video. “I kissed your face a million times, and I wish I could give you a million more.”
