It's never too late to begin the healing process from childhood sexual abuse. It's never too early to fall in love with the person God created you to be. Long ago someone made a choice to take away your innocence, but today that someone can't touch your freedom to heal.

I Can See Clearly Now

It's when I see a hug I know we made the right decision.

Bounding down the steps on his way to school, my eighteen year old stopped. Three little faces peered up at him, large backpacks engulfing their little bodies. With one arm he gathered them in and gave a squeeze. Their bronze faces brighten; their easy smiles widened, and in unison they giggled, "Bye, Ben."

Last year they didn't have a big brother. This year they have three. And they love them...refer to them all the time as their big brothers.

You see, it has been almost a year since we said yes to the call to bring these three little girls into our home. The details of their history, their story, will be theirs to tell one day...if they so choose. But for now, I will simply say, their past was troubled and they needed a home.

And today I see clearly what God already knew--our home needed them.

  4. I affirm your calling to take these precious lives into your home. Your home needed them too. It is awesome to see that your teenagers have embraced them alongside of you.
