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!!
