As we have been preparing for adoption, one thing continues to come up in the training material. Attachment with the child. Here are kids that have had little personal care or interaction with adults and as they transition into a new family, it takes time and effort to help them trust in you.
Studying this reality I have also been struck at how my own biological children have attached to Stacy and I been contemplating the implication for my own history and others around me. So much of our attachment as children shapes are ability to relate in adulthood. Fascinating stuff!
Enter the fine folks at Coram Deo in Omaha. In a recent Wednesday Conversation, the pastors discussed the issue and its ramifications for gospel community. It is a well worthwhile listen.
