Sunday Visit: Will Salvation Heal Brain Damage?

Not long ago I discovered the blog, daysofwonderandgrace.  I read the post I’m featuring today, went back and read it again, then sent it to a friend, and thought about it  some more.  I hope it will benefit you as well.

Will Salvation Heal Brain Damage?

The post was prompted by a post on my friend, Dorothy’s blog, Urban Servant.  If you have not read Urban Servant, you should definitely stop by,and if you have children affected by FASD, it is a must-read.

FASD: It’s all about Sin – But it Might Not be Theirs We Need to Focus On

It is Sunday morning and I’m home from church with Dimples who had a fever last night.  We decided one day of rest, liquids, and a bit of extra attentive mothering might do her some good.

Have a wonderful day.

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.

    Excellent article. I provide respite care for a little girl with several handicaps (autism, cerebral palsy, plus a few more) and I am constantly having to judge between behaviors she can't help and behaviors I have to be firm about and help her grow to a better place, even though it may take years for the behavior I want to see to become natural for her. One example is not allowing her to touch the car door or window control. I have child locks so she can't get out but I think she needs to learn to obey for her own well being even though she doesn't understand why. Other issues I distract her or try to provide something to keep her occupied with or stay between her and the ability to create a mess (like throwing a lamp because the impulse hits). She's young and will always be young mentally so she will possibly never know how to relate to Jesus in a salvation way but she is fortunate to be raised in a family that surrounds her with the security that comes from a Christ centered family. Thanks for sharing this Sunday Visit.

    Thank you for posting such insightful articles. I'm thankful for bloggers who cause us to take a second look at problem behaviors, viewing them through a lens of "informed grace."
