All people when they come to life are born the same but with different possibilities. Our life journeys are individual.
Some people face problems in childhood while others themselves when they are adults. Some go through things that no person should go through.
Chris Tomlison is in this category. Now he has two daughters but has suffered a lot in life. His faith is very strong despite what he has gone through.
Chris was very strong during the accident.
Before he had turned even two years old, Chris slipped away from his parents and wandered into a shed in his family’s backyard. There, the curious toddler accidentally knocked over a can of gasoline and covered himself in gasoline.
The boy suffered burns on 98% of his body and had unimaginable pain. With the help of his family, he succeeded but his life changed radically.
He spent all his childhood in hospitals where he made over 200 interventions.
Chris said: “I always found the positivity in everything. I had this big old smile on my face because I knew God was with me… It wasn’t just my own strength, it was God who was there for me the whole time. ”
When he grew up he was told that it would be very difficult for him to fall in love and have children. Yes with faith in god Chis brought two daughters to life.
Because of his appearance, he was not hired and had problems finding a job, and remained homeless.
A few years ago, the father-of-two took to the internet looking to begin a conversation about his myriad struggles. His aim was not to seek pity or help from anyone, but rather to be a catalyst for discussion regarding the way people with disabilities are seen and treated in today’s world.
People helped him because unfortunately he and his wife of 14 years had abandoned him and the girls.
“It’s horrible,” Chris said of his wife’s departure. “I’d rather be burned all over again than to experience that pain.”
“I looked at my kids and they were smiling at me and they hugged me,” he said. “And I was like, ‘This is my purpose. This is what I need to do – they need me. ‘”
“Because a lot of people think God’s not working anymore – God doesn’t do miracles. God does miracles every second every day. All you got to do is look around you. ”
