Share Your Dilemma with Delilah.
I have two daughters who are planning to flee the coop soon. They will both graduate this June, and God-willing, they will both attend college next fall. I am excited and a little sad about all of it…but since I still have six children
left at home, I am far from having an empty nest.
My daughter Angel is a senior this year and it was only 6 years ago that I adopted her and brought her home from West Africa where she lived in a refugee camp. She was just a girl living on the streets when I met her, surviving horrific conditions. She had never set foot into a school. She didn’t know how to read or write.
Now Angel is working towards graduating and aspires to be a doctor one day. I cannot express how deeply proud I am of her and of how far she has come, and how far she is willing to go to change the world for good. It hasn’t always
been easy reasoning with a young woman who has such an
independent-survivalist-been-taking-care-of-myself kind of background. But it’s amazing what love, nurturing, food, education and patience can do in the life of a child. Angel has flourished into a beautiful, spirited, intelligent young
Many of my kids have overcome amazing obstacles at young ages. Some of my kids were adopted out of the foster system where they were terribly abused, but they
don’t use those problems as an excuse not to succeed. As adults now, they are using their past as motivation to change their world and give their children stable and loving homes.
My kids inspire me to try harder, and I hope their stories resonate with you. I hope you are pouring your love into another human being today, be it your spouse, your children, your grandchildren, or your friends. Do something to share your heart. And choose to use the obstacles in your life as motivation; choose to see them as stepping stones to a better situation.
Let your faith be bigger than your struggles and your fear.
Just a thought.... With Love, Delilah <3
