Wrong Sperm Gives Couple Black Baby

I suppose anything is possible. Abc news reports. This couple realized they got the wrong sperm from a fertility clinic because their child doesn't resemble them. Wow. So now they're suing. Funny thing is, the mother looks kind of black, doesn't she? I guess she's Hispanic. Funny story, funny movie premise!

That is so sad. But if they had addopted, their child would be even more different. But I do see their expectation of having their own child like themselves. Like it was written, "When God created man, he made him in the likeness of God. He created them male and female and blessed them. And when they were created, he called them "man. When Adam had lived 130 years, he had a son in his own likeness, in his own image..." Gen. 5:1-3. Its in the divine order of things that our children which we "create" be made in our image. It subconsciously creates a bond that wouldn't otherwise be there. Yet, through grace, we can overlook differences in race, culture, personalities, etc. That is what God has done to a whole race of sinners. And through knowing His grace we can also be gracious to each other. Thus through the varied situations we get ourselves into, we can continue on with life. So they can keep their baby, and hold it dear as if nothing ever went wrong.

If they loved that child from day one, even if it were adopted from a complete stranger, it would always look to that couple as its only mother and father.

They said in the article that they do love the child anyway as their own, but how will they explain the lawsuit to her, that they sued over her?
