A Friend: Mom Again
"They treated her like an animal. She was just a little girl.
They put her in a place like a cage. Clothes were never changed. Never cared for properly with food or bathroom.
I didn't know if I could take her in. Only because I already had taken in four other girls who weren't my own. All different dads...different moms. Some related, others not.
I thought I was done after raising my own kids. I didn't think I could be a mom again. I didn't think I could do this. Not at my age.
But these girls...they've blessed me more than anything. Now they have more they could ever have before.
God works, you know. I believe that. And He continues to. God works in mysterious ways."
2 John 1:5-6 “And now I ask you, dear lady—not as though I were writing you a new commandment, but the one we have had from the beginning—that we love one another. And this is love, that we walk according to his commandments; this is the commandment, just as you have heard from the beginning, so that you should walk in it.”
May your love never be too fearful for another adventure. Seize it with an open heart and wide arms.
