Finding Hope -Frank
No matter how hard you try as a parent, no matter how good a life you’ve provided for your child, sometimes you must pray that in the end all works out for the best. You pray that things out of your control will be okay. Deep down despite your intentions, you know that life itself is in control.
Frank was a resident of Maine when he and his wife adopted a baby girl. Soon after that the family moved to Georgia. I’m confident that the family provided a wonderful life, but like many adopted children the burning question became, " Who were my biological parents"?
Frank and his wife, being people of faith, prayed for a positive experience. It seems those prayers were answered. There’s a concept in a church community that when you know of someone too hurting to pray that your job is to pray for them. I’m sure Frank and his wife had a few butterflies about how this search would end, but they prayed anyway.
With the help of online software, a little luck and probably some divine intervention, Frank’s daughter found, and has since met, her biological father. She also met her two brothers and learned the location of her biological mother. In 2018 the intent was to spend some time together over the holidays.
God bless the folks who are there when babies are helplessly in need. Bless the parents of adults who realize children need roots but adults need wings to follow their own path. There is a God intended path for all, and parents need to support, not stand in the way.
When things are done in love, there can only be goodness and hope as a result.
