This is Joni Eareckson Tada. Most Christians know or have heard of Dr. RC Sproul—prominent theologian, author, pastor. But what you may not know is that RC is the grandfather of a child with a serious disability. Her name is Shannon and, oh, she is the most charming little girl despite a brain disorder that has left her unable to speak, feed, or take care of herself. But as RC says, “There’s no qualification for children being a blessing—it doesn’t say only healthy children are a blessing; the Bible speaks of all children born to their parents as being a blessing. And Shannon is just that – she’s a joy!” Friend, you just have to hear more about the Sproul family and Shannon. In fact, we have a Joni and Friends television episode about them that I’d love for you to watch. You can do so right on line. So, visit us at joniandfriends.org. And remember, all children are a blessing!
