I’ve been reading Lysa TerKeurst’s book, Uninvited, for the second time. I feel myself falling more in love with it every chapter. She just “gets” me. This chapter is about relationships and all of the potential that they contain. .
How fitting for the situation that we are in right now. I find my mind struggling with how I will love a birth family and keep connections open with them when they have brought trauma into the life of a child. If I am honest I have very little tolerance for people who hurt children in any way. Kids are my heart. It’s then that I am reminded of the redemptive and potential-seeing love of the Father. I have messed up many many times and yet He still sees potential in me. Maybe that’s all these birth families need. Someone to see and encourage potential in them no matter how challenging that can be.
