THE MOTHERING EXPERIENCE
My thirteen- year-old daughter is perhaps having more trouble than some teens “discovering who she is” because she is adopted from South Korea and we have no idea who her birth mother might be. Recently Amy received braces on her teeth and she was more and more uncomfortable as the day wore on. By bedtime she was miserable. I gave her some medication and invited her to snuggle up with me for awhile. Soon she became more comfortable and drowsy. In a small voice that gradually tapered off to sleep she said, “Mom, I know who my real mom is, it is the one who takes away the hurting.” I was reminded of Mark 3:33-35. I also know who my “real parent” is. Margaret H. Cobb, pastor of the United Methodist Church of Alto, Michigan.
