Seven months pregnant, she was, when she had to donate blood for her other son who was fighting for his life in the hospital. It was a trying time in the life of a young and aspiring mother who found herself in life’s dilemma and had to decide; one which saved a life and posed a risk to the other — he was a growing fetus and had to pay the price, unfortunately.
Fast-tracked to a couple of months later, a child was born and his parents named him Clinton Emmanuel.
He was a very cute and fair child who grew as every other child, well so they thought until he was four years and still couldn’t talk.
A Series of checks was conducted, and they traced the cause of the impaired growth back to the blood donation that was done by his mother to save his brother’s life while she was pregnant with him (as stated in our opening paragraph).
Very artistic, he was... still is.
Clinton practically drew anything and anyone that darkened his doorstep.
He drew images on the soil, as he was ever eager to welcome a visitor to his rearview.
Gifted, he was but impaired, couldn’t say a word or understand any. They communicated him through sign languages and that left an ache in the heart of those around him, who experienced daily the great manifestation of a gifted hand—he was born to draw.
He uttered his first intelligible word as a teenager and that affected everything from his education, relationship, family, to mention a few.
Today, he has grown to be an amazing artist who has painted his way to the Lord’s heart and to as many; whose path he has graced.
Let this be an inspiration to those out there who, out of medical complications, health havocs, societal and environmental flaws, unseen and neglected risks have become a victim of circumstance, you are not less privileged as it’s perceived. You can be whatever you would be, regardless. All it takes is your consistency, belief, ever-burning passion, a loving family, and of course, God being the very centre of it all and you’ll be unstoppable.
Your dreams are valid, just as Clinton’s and you can tell from the many exceptional pieces he has painted and haven't even started yet. Watch out!!!
I’m inspired by this kid and my prayer is that he knows and loves the Lord with all of his being because the sky is just the starting point for his many significant accomplishments.
He’ll paint princes on the path that leads to their thrones and warriors as they mount the horses that ride them to victory.
Cheers to creativity
Peace & love
