Choosing Thomas

I'm not sure I've seen a video that brought as many tears to my eyes as this one, on the website of the Dallas Morning News.

It chronicles T. K. and Deidrea Laux, an evangelical couple who decided to give birth to their son, Thomas, despite the fact that he had the DNA abnormality Trisomy 13.

You can read Deidrea's diary here.

DMN will be running two more stories on this family: tomorrow (Sunday) and Sept. 6.

Two thoughts as I watched the video through tears: (1) this would not have happened if sin had not entered the world; (2) they would not have responded this way if the grace of Christ had not entered their hearts.
