Good read for adoptive parents

I followed a God into this story who heals and redeems, who
 restores wasted years and mends broken places.  This God specializes in the Destroyed. I've seen it. I've been a part of it.  I have His ancient Word that tells of it.  I love a Jesus who made reconciliation his whole mission. My children will not remain broken.  They are loved by too good a Savior.  I will not 
remain exhausted and spent. I am loved by too merciful a Father.

  1. A teary thank you for sharing this article. I needed to know that I was not the only person dealing with huge issues over and over and over. There are other mommy's fighting this same fight and it is worth it, it really is. It is just that some days are soo awful that there aren't words to explain. How do you say to a friend who isn't living in this adoption journey that you are absolutely sure that you will loose your mind if you find another puddle of pee outside your bedroom door, or a malicious destruction of one more valuable item. The unanswered why's can be so overwhelming. But God............that is the only thing that keeps me going these days. He is the God of hope and the miracle worker, the God who restores and heals. And slowly we do make progress and we thank God each step of the way and ask for His mercy and grace that we won't mess things up worse and we will be able to love with His love, even when we don't think we have anything left to give. So thank you again

    Yes. It IS worth it. It is hard and it is constant and- wow- it is such a spiritual battle for our kids- but it *is* worth it.

    They are broken and He will restore- and He doesn't need us but chooses to let us be a part of His work in our kids' lives. Praying for you, LeAnn!

  3. Happy Thanksgiving, Stacy! xoxo
