I Can Only Imagine

Bradley Mattes   |   April 09, 2014

High school wrestler, Nik Hoot, is known for what he has—amazing physical talent—in spite of what he doesn’t have—some key body parts. Nik’s biological parents in Russia tried to abort him, but failed. However, Nik paid a price for the attempt on his life. He was born missing parts of both legs and doesn’t have fully developed fingers. Marvin and Apryl Hoot of Indiana adopted him and the kid’s been a standout ever since. In addition to Nik, there’s five other adopted children, all with disabilities, and there’s the three biological children. Nik has a special tattoo on his chest with a red rose on each end of the phrase, “I can only imagine.” The rose is a symbol of the pro-life movement and the phrase is a reminder of what could’ve been for all the babies who died.
