I've been listening to some old BYU devotionals and have heard many stories about people being disowned by their parents when they joined the LDS church. It breaks my heart. Yet what difference is it when we disown our kids that are "wayward"? Not much! I hope I will always accept my babies for who they are.
I know we are all not perfect. I know that there are times I'd like to tie my kids up in their rooms to keep them safe. Since this is not possible, and I have to let them grow up, I know they will make mistakes. I know I will make mistakes raising them. I know that they are wonderful people, and I hope to be in their lives forever.
