I Won’t Let You Go

To my dear future (adopted) children,

I know that adoption is a wonderful beautiful thing. Its a wonderful picture of God’s adoption of us into his family. Its a wonderful healing thing. But it comes from grief, loss and brokenness. Losing your first family, losing your second family and more. I still don’t know your story. But I know one thing is for sure. There is much loss. And with this loss our hearts break and you will put up walls to protect your precious broken hearts. We will be here offering you unconditional love. But out of fear you may push that love away. You will desperately want our love but you want it so much that the fear of losing it will be too much.

I want to make you two promises.
1. Gods love is eternal. There is absolutely nothing you can do that will break his love for you.
2. We love you unconditionally. No matter how much you fight back… we will be patiently loving you with all our hearts.

This song by one of my favourite bands, Switchfoot, makes me cry every time! I hear it and I am reminded of the love that God gives us. Completely unconditional and everlasting. And it also reminds me of the difficult past that you will forever bare in your hearts. A past that was completely out of your control. We wont let you go. We will never let you go!

When it feels like surgery
And it burns like third degree
And you wonder what is it worth?
When your insides breaking in
And you feel that ache again
And you wonder
What’s giving birth?
If you could let the pain of the past go
Of your soul
None of this is in your control
If you could only let your guard down
You could learn to trust me somehow
I swear, that I won’t let you go
If you could only let go your doubts
If you could just believe in me now
I swear, that I won’t let you go
I won’t let you go
When your fear is currency
And you feel that urgency
You want peace but there’s war in your head
Maybe that’s where life is born
When our façades are torn
Pain gives birth to the promise ahead
If you could let the pain of the past go
Of your soul
None of this is in your control
If you could only let your guard down
If you could learn to trust me somehow
I swear, that I won’t let you go
If you could only let go your doubts
If you could just believe in me now
I swear, that I won’t let you go
I won’t let you go
I’ll always be by your side
Yeah
If you could only let your guard down
If you could learn to trust me somehow
I swear, that I won’t let you go
If you could only let go your doubts
If you could just believe in me now
I swear, that I won’t let you go
I won’t let you go
(I won’t let you go)
There ain’t no darkness strong enough that could tear you out from my heart
There ain’t no strength that’s strong enough that could tear this love apart
Never gonna let you go
Never gonna let you go
No I won’t let you go

Oh my sweet babies, come home to me soon so I can love you.

    May I simply just say what a relief to find somebody that actually knows what they’re discussing on the internet. You definitely understand how to bring an issue to light and make it important. A lot more people have to read this and understand this side of the story. It’s surprising you aren’t more popular because you definitely have the gift.
