Chosen & Gifted
When Jen and her husband, Lucas, began to plan their family years ago, she never imagined having a child with Down Syndrome. Though doctors had initial concerns during her pregnancy, she refused testing, believing that regardless of the diagnosis, God was in control. A beautiful baby girl was born, and later the doctor’s suspicions were confirmed. Charlotte, her sweet baby Charlie girl, had Trisomy 21.
When the feared became a reality, she turned to God, seeking for answers and desperate for something to hold onto. Then God spoke,
“I chose you to be her mom.”
In a moment, the healing began. Fear and heaviness was replaced with joy and privilege. Jen received this word from the Lord and hasn’t turned back. Once embracing her calling that she was chosen for Charlie, Jen has found healing, inspiration, and power through the word of God in every season.
