REUNITED

This week (1-11) an interesting story hit the presses:

A woman who was kidnapped as a newborn 23 years ago says finding her real mother "felt like a dream."

Carlina White was just 19 days old when she disappeared from Harlem Hospital in New York. She tells the New York Post that when the woman who had raised her could not produce a birth certificate, she became suspicious.

White was raised in Connecticut under the name Nejdra Nance. She now lives in Atlanta.

The Center for Missing and Exploited Children helped her find her birth mother, Joy White. They were reunited in New York on Saturday. [AP]

What a story. But, if you think about it, that story is replicated in each one of us when we find the Lord. We were meant to be children of God, but sin has stolen us away. When we come to know Christ, we are reunited with our Father in heaven.
