Sunday Visit: Rescued

I love this article. Rescued is written by a woman who was a child from “hard places” and eventually adopted as an older child.  Her story begins like this,

When I was just a little girl, like a wee little thing, I had a different mom and dad. And they were kind to me, but they had hurts and they had addictions and they didn’t know how to take care of themselves, much less a wee girl and her little brother.

There is sorrow, and then there is hope.  God places the lonely in families; sometimes we have the privilege of being part of that story.

I hope you’ll read it.  Thank you, Emily, for sharing it with me.

Let me introduce myself. Russ and I are the parents of twelve children by birth and adoption, and sometimes more through foster care. I'm the creator of One Thankful Mom which has been as much of a gift to me as to my readers. In 2011 I became a TBRI® Pracitioner* and have lived and breathed connected parenting ever since. I'm deeply honored to be the co-author, together with the late Dr. Karyn Purvis, of The Connected Parent; it is her final written work. I love speaking at events for adoptive and foster parents. I'm also the co-founder of The Adoption Connection, a podcast and resource site for adoptive moms. I mentor and encourage adoptive moms so you can find courage and hope in your journeys of loving your children well.

    Someone forwarded "Rescued" to me the other day too, and I loved it! SO encouraging to see an adult adoptee who, though no doubt still having many hurts to deal with, also loves her adoptive parents and praises God for His work in all of their lives.
