Keenan kicking back and loving life

Keenan Robert is our firstborn child and we could not be more proud of him.  While I was pregnant with Keenan, my husband and I prayed that he would have a wonderful personality and that he would be nothing more and nothing less than God wanted him to be.  He is exactly that, a perfect creation from God.  He smiles all the time and loves people!!  Being born with his left lower forearm and hand would have, in fact, been more than God intended.  At first, we both wondered if it was somehow our fault that Keenan was born with a hand difference.  Soon we were reminded of the story in John, chapter 9, when Jesus was confronted with a similar question.  His disciples asked him about a man born without his sight, "Rabbi, who sinned, this man or his parents, that he was born blind?"  Jesus responded, "Neither this man nor his parents sinned, but this happened so that the work of God might be displayed in his life."  We truly believe if we continue to have a positive attitude, our family can use this situation to bring glory to God.  We hope you will do the same!!
