That symbolic gesture, along with a commitment to Jesus Christ, was the beginning of the "new" family. The next year God cemented our family by sending us a baby girl. She became the hub of the family because she was everyone's half sister and our child. Praise God for his grace through the years!! We are not a family of his, hers and ours--we are simply a family blended by, through and with the constant love and assistance of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior!
Thank you for the inspiring article.
