She wanted to adopt. He didn’t. For years she prayed and felt God telling her to wait and let Him work on her husband, that one day she would have her baby. They raised three kids, had some grandchildren, and finally it was time. God had a baby just for them. Angie, a special education teacher, knew pretty early she wanted to adopt a child with Down’s Syndrome. She tells me the whole thing is one big God story. How He brought this special boy into their lives at just the right time.
Little James Michael has had a rough beginning. He’s had some surgeries, some complications, and at four months old he is finally the size of a newborn baby and soon will get to go home. These parents are so in love with this boy.
James Michael has spent his first four months of life at Children’s Hospital where he has been lovingly cared for, and this is where I met them to take his photos. It was such an honor to meet this precious boy. I’m so happy for his new family and excited to see him grow up.
