Our “Happy Mom” Club
At the city beach on the bank of the Dnipro River, we met with young moms who are orphanage graduates raising their small children.
Our last meeting was about a month ago, so there was a lot to catch up on from these young women.
From the moment we all arrived, the atmosphere was friendly and joyful. Praying, swimming, beach games, and a talk on parenting toddlers brought all of us closer together. Our theme was for the day was, “How to show love to your children in practical ways.” Everyone shared their thoughts and feelings, some talked about the experience they’ve already had in this.
Everyone there was especially touched listening to the girls, who yesterday grew up in an orphanage and today have become mothers, raising their own children. They talked about the role of a mother and about abandoned children. Pain, that even yesterday was compressed in the heart of an orphan girl, is gradually giving way to the love welling up inside for her small child. Maybe this is what God is using to heal their broken hearts!
