Ron: No, the bridge was always there. She just finally crossed it.

Announcer: For FamilyLife Blended®, here’s Ron Deal.

Ron: Jennifer and her stepfather started on opposite sides of the ravine. She told me, “It took many years to appreciate what my stepfather did for me starting at age 13.” Now she was a 28-year-old mother herself and finally she understood. She said, “He provided for us and loved me even when I just couldn’t let myself love him. I don’t know why. I just couldn’t. But eventually I relaxed and I let him in, and now we have an awesome relationship.”

You know, adoptive parents and stepparents can be God’s provision for a child. Finding acceptance may take a while, but when love builds a bridge cross it. For FamilyLife Blended I’m Ron Deal.
