That reminds me of another parent who loved children who were not his and the sacrifice he made even when they were spitting in his face.

But God showed his great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while we were still sinners.
Ro 5:8 TLB


"What's a stepmom to do? Worry, without the way to resolution, Love, without the bond. It is our bane."

It is, sometimes. But I know that when they grow up, they will recognize what it is that we did and realize that we loved them with all we had even though they weren't "ours".

Good for you for not reacting and just having that conversation with her so she knows the door is open next time. How sad for her that she felt like she couldn't just come the few blocks to spend the night instead of spending it scared and alone.

It's so sad that parents do that to their kids. Rotten.


I agree with Stephanie. Whether we grow up because of our upbringing or inspite of it, we grow up, and in so doing, learn why. As long as what we offer our kids is given with love and from our hearts, unconditionally, as Jesus loves us, they will know what you did for them, and they will love you for it.
