I listened to a young couple talk about their first-born child who had Downs Syndrome, and the shock they had the day of his birth. Listen to the dad’s thoughts a few years later: “My young son’s birth was the worse day of my life and also the best. I have leaned more about life, love and God through Him, than I would ever have had without him. Truly God knew. This child was His gift to us.” I was inspired listening to this father. Truly God’s ways are nothing like our ways and His thoughts, nothing like our thoughts. Every child is precious is His sight.
