Little did Carol and I know the challenges we would face when we adopted our special gifts from God, Matthew and Nathan.
We didn't know that we'd be dealing with ASD and FASD. We likely didn't even know what those abbreviations meant.
I just wanted to be a DAD to them.
Matthew has Asperger's Syndrome, an ASD, Autism Spectrum Disorder condition.
Nathan deals with FASD, Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder. It is relatively mild but the challenges are immense.
God knew what he was "in for" when He chose us, redeemed us and called us for Himself and yet He did it anyway.
When we were still in our sins, Christ died for us. He knew all about us and loved us anyway. What love! Thank you Father!
