She Thought They Were Just Being Nice

Foster teens who have been in crisis after crisis have a very difficult time adapting and feeling loved.  Generally, they are more exposed to lifelong attachment issues than other teens.  This is the story of one young lady who has been broken many times and how the foster family wanted her to know how valuable she was.  I would suggest having a few tissues handy.  It is very powerful.

  1. You were SO right about the tissues ! God Bless you for sharing this lovely moving story. One can only imagine the rejection issues that come from being fostered throughout your childhood, into your teens. I wanted to hug the family that finally showed her how valuable she is . xx

    • Having adopted 2 of my own from foreign countries, I know what it is like trying to find good resources and support. Glad that this was an encouragement to you.

  3. I love love love this video. It just goes to show children are never “too old” to adopt. My husband and I are six months into praying about adopting two older boys (age 8 and 10, brothers) from Ukraine. I wish I could fly over and get them right now!!

    • We adopted 2 from Romania. I know about anxious waiting and seeking the Lord about adoption. I wish you the best and please feel free to connect with me if you have any questions. Blessings!
