BORN INTO THE FAMILY


Pastor Wayne Cordeiro, in Leading on Empty, writes of his daughter, adopted when only three days old. The apple of his eye, Abby, compromised her faith and morality, making choices that expelled her from college, and for two years was searching for her identity, struggling why her birth mother didn’t want her. Her adopted parents continued to pray, to call, email and write but never received any responses from Abby. But they persisted, determined never to give up on her. One day they received an email from Abby, who said she had returned to God. She wrote, "I know now that God may not have had me born of this family, but I am convinced that He has had me born into this family. I am coming home!"
