My mom and I watched some of “America’s Got Talent” tonight. There was an amazing story that a father of 6 told before he sang to the audience. When his wife gave birth to their daughter, the 2 of them almost died. The man prayed all night and was of course grateful that his family made it through the night after being told they may not. The risk was elevated for any additional pregnancies, so the couple decided not to have any more children. The man who is a pediatric nurse, said that when their daughter reached about 7 years old, she started having a recurring dream that included 3 little boys. After a couple of years, the young girl convinced her mom and dad to adopt. The first call they received was for 3 little boys. Since then, they adopted 2 other boys. I was bawling before the young dad even sang a note. There is more to the story and you can watch the whole video clip here. It was a beautiful story of faith, love, generosity, and self-sacrifice.
I Found God today in a moving story of faith and self giving.
