We could never have guessed that God would use Colt’s birth to lead us to Nic in an orphanage across the ocean.
We would never have imagined the amount of love and joy that Colt and Nic would spread to people all around the world.
We never knew how God would use these two boys to give comfort and hope to so many others who have received their own diagnosis.
But, almost 4 years ago, on the evening of Colt’s birth when we looked at Colt’s beautiful almond eyes and asked ourselves, “Do you think he has Down syndrome?”... We did know Psalm 139:14… I am fearfully and wonderfully made.
We knew 1 Corinthians 1:27 …God chose those the world considers foolish to shame the wise; God chose the weak things of the world to shame the strong and
John 9:3… but this happened so that the works of God might be displayed in him.
So, we knew that God was going to use Colt with his beautiful extra chromosome for His glory and this was the beginning of a new adventure. As all adventures in life, it is not always without fear, trials and difficulties but it is filled with the testimony of God’s grace and faithfulness through it all.
