Adoptive, Foster, and Birth Parents Long for This

Imagine standing at Tiffany’s jewelry showcase.

Your eyes are drawn to a lustrous, huge. string of pearl, set in a simple, yet elegant setting.

All of us would love having those pearls.

However, there’s another pearl far more precious to adoptive and foster parents…a pearl you would travel to the ends of the earth to obtain…a pearl that can’t be bought.

What the Pearl Is for Parents

It’s the pearl of intimacy between you and your adopted child.

Intimacy means creating an environment that nurtures a give-and-take relationship, which is foundational for future healthy relationships.

Ponder this….and I’ll share more about the pearl in the days to come.

“…the kingdom of heaven is like a merchant looking for fine pearls…” (Matthew 13:46)
