Sometimes we need to take strength from others to give us perspective and perseverance.

Today it we find it in the story of Bowen Toomey, a boy aged 5 born with no arms or legs. He was adopted at the age of 18 months by the Toomey family, who flew to his orphanage in Serbia to take him to his new home in America

While this young boy was born with a disability which many could not comprehend, he enjoys attending mainstream school, and has fun skateboarding, reading, swimming and drawing.

“He does everything any other kid does, he just finds his way to do it.” – Devon Toomey, Mother

In spite of his hardships, Bowden radiates joy, is not discouraged, and has completed his loving family. This something we can all learn from.

No matter how difficult things seem, perseverance ultimately brings joy. Friends1st is the UK’s no.1 offline Christian dating agency, we can help you persevere in your search for Christian friendship and love.
