Growing up on an Arkansas farm, Walt Manis believed that one day he’d have a daughter he would call Chloe. And when Walt married long-time friend Annie, his dream seemed finally to be within reach. But as months turned into years and no child came for the couple, the aspiring father started to think that God had decided not to grant his wishes after all. Then adoption provided an answer to his prayers – along with a rather stunning coincidence.
As a child, Walt enjoyed nothing more than getting out among nature on his parents’ 100-acre farm. Deeply religious, he also spent a lot of time communing with God. And Walt believed that God had once provided him with a vision of his future daughter. The dark-skinned, dark-eyed girl he saw that day was called Chloe.
