“I will not leave you as orphans; I will come to you.” – John 14:18, NIV

Tara was twenty-five when she adopted a Chinese baby that she named Lily. When she brought Lily to see her grandparents, she was worried they would reject the tiny girl since she wasn’t a blood relative. “Older generations don’t always view things the same way. I wanted my grandparents to love their great granddaughter like I love her.”

When Tara visited, her grandmother quickly scooped up the tiny infant. She brushed the hair off her forehead and said, “Yep, she has the Wiggins’ family forehead.”

Tara smiled when she realized her grandparents accepted Lily. “From the day forward, Lily was a part of the family. No one treated her differently just because I didn’t give birth to her.”

But whatever traits you get from your Christian family, the goal for all of us is the same—to reflect the character of our Heavenly Father.
