Love Then Listen – By Daphne C. Reiley
As we have traveled this path with our child since the Fall of 2014, some questions have been answered—they’ve had to be, because there were new questions waiting.
I will be sharing my experience of this transition as the mother who gave birth to this beautiful, brave, and wondrous child.
My hope is that by sharing my experience, the door will be opened to many other mothers to accept and not fear accompanying their child on this journey with love, grace, and respect. As mothers we are purveyors of grace for our children. We are conduits of God’s grace and mercy. Through our unconditional love we can move with our children as they find and reveal themselves, all the while easing their fears.
I share my experiences with this transition because I know there are others out there who might be needing some hope, some understanding, and some way of finding their faith in the midst of such a transition.
