As we were talking about it and telling Durant and the others the story, Matt and I realized that the boy Durant was when we first saw a picture of him is a testimony in itself of what adoption is about. He was a very frail malnourished little boy who we were told rarely smiled and was serious. His arms and legs were so thin they looked like they could brake if squeezed too tight. His belly stretched so tight from the parasites living in there. The day I met Durant he was wearing a size 3-6m shirt - he was over 2 years old.
Now to look at Durant you would never guess it. He's healthy and full of energy and his smile and laugh can light up a room!
Durant is our special gift! He's the little boy that God placed on my heart at just a young girl of 10 years old.
It's hard to believe that this little guy was once described as serious cause just thinking about him brings a huge smile to our faces. He is truly a joy and Matt and I are so blessed to able to be his parents.
