People spend so much of their life looking for meaning and significance in patterns and different circumstances that it can be hard sometimes to shake the feeling that larger things are happening outside of our awareness and out of our control. For the religious and irreligious alike, we can all agree that there are moments in life that seem to transcend rational explanation.

Walter Manis’s heartwarming story of adoption, however, can make you believe in destiny.

Walt Manis grew up on his parents’ 100-acre farm in Arkansas. The little boy used to spend all his time under the sun with nature, communicating with God, and developing his spiritual bonds. While walking around the farm one day something incredible happened. The man believed he saw a vision of his future daughter when he was 12.

In the vision, Walt saw that he would have a daughter and her name would be Chloe.

When Walt married his long-time friend Annie, his dream seemed to be within reach as they both wanted to become parents. As months turned into years and no child came, the man started to think his early vision was just a mistake.

Although the pair eventually turned to adoption, Walt wasn’t very happy about the idea, but he supported Annie through the process. They traveled to Wichita, Kansas, to meet Allison, the mother of their soon-to-be-child. Imagine Walt's surprise when he recognized the mother because she looked exactly like the little girl he’d seen when he was 12 years old!

Moreover, the birth mother suggested a name for the girl: Chloe. At that point, Walt and Annie started crying.

On February 17, 2010, Chloe, the driving factor of Walt’s life for decades, was finally born.

This little girl the couple adopted was an answer to the man's prayers.

It seems that the story proves it one more time: Miracles happen when we least expect them!
