    Thank you for your encouraging letter! I have been struggling to like my soon to be adopted 18 year old who is really testing us and making our lives miserable right now. I have been upset with myself for feeling this way. For the first 8 months she was so fun to spend time with and seemed like the daughter I always wanted, but something changed after that and everything has spiraled downward the past 5 months. I love her so much but some days she’s zero fun to be around and gets on my every last nerve! I feel like she purposely goes against our values and does things she knows is wrong just to get a reaction out of us. I so appreciate your honesty and wisdom you have shared. Bless you!

    1. Oh, friend. That testing season is ROUGH. Praying that you will have the strength to act in love, no matter how you feel. ❤️

    Hi Natasha,

    I have read both these letters to the Adopted Mom so far that you posted recently. I know these letters and words of encouragement will bless MANY adoptive parents both now and in years to come. I’m thankful that there are so many resources now concerning adoption for folks who possibly want to adopt. When my folks adopted me, I don’t know just how much in resources for people who wanted to adopt that was even out back then. You are a blessing to many. I know God will use you and yours and your kids’ stories to help other people who are/will be going through the same things.

    God Bless!
