Christopher Duffley has been singing a happier tune since his birth in 2001 when he was born premature, tested positive for cocaine and given a 50-percent chance of survival, reports Hallels.
“It’s hard to keep my composure talking about Christopher’s story,” said Christopher’s uncle, Stephen Duffley, as he introduced his nephew before a performance in Concord, New Hampshire.
Mr. Duffley and his wife, Christine, pulled Christopher out of Florida’s foster-care system in August 2002 and brought the child, who is both blind and autistic, to live with them at their home in New England.
“He’s been a blessing to our family and he loves to share his gifts,” Mr. Duffley said.
Among those gifts is a knack for singing, having — at only 4 years old — performed for the music ministry at Eight Days of Hope, an evangelical disaster-relief organization.
Christopher in 2011 shared his gifts once again during a moving performance of contemporary Christian classic “Open the Eyes of My Heart.”
