    Thank you for your daily encouragement. Do any of the other listeners have a word of wisdom re daughter-in-law who does not want my company; who does not speak or acknowledge me when I do see my 3 precious grandchildren? Getting more and more evasive each year.

      Hi Joan, my daughter-in-law has been very difficult too. She and our son have been married for 30 years now, and as she has got older she seems to have mellowed a bit, but there is still no real communication. I have always tried to act in a loving way towards her and have forgiven her in my heart for the hurts she has caused us. I pray for her each day (as I do for the rest of the family) and then I have to leave the rest up to God. I try and think about her positively, and thank God that she is a good mother and wife, and if she wants next to no connection with us, then that’s her choice and I can do nothing to change that. I just have to accept that and not fret over it. I don’t want to be robbed of my peace. I’m sorry I can’t tell you how you can change the situation, but I can tell you how I have managed to cope and keep my peace. I hope you will be able to do the same. Tineke.

      Joan, I really feel for you. May I suggest I that you do something that your daughter-in-law least expects. Pick on a little act of kindness and thank her for it, in person, via a telephone call or email. I did this a couple of years ago when i visited my son’s family for 2 weeks. Their reactions to my note were amazing and I felt so blessed. Give it a go Joan. I will pray for you too as you step out in faith

      Firstly as mother, and grandmother, my heart and prayers go out to you. Family is so important. – In these situations, I wonder where the behaviour comes from?…… A past hurt, …learned?… Have you been able to talk to her, gently, about her thoughts on the situation? …. The impact it is having, on all relationships, concerned; (your son, grandchildren, as well as yourselves). Perhaps ‘asking’ her for suggestions, in which a resolve could come about, to strengthen the relationship.
      All situations differ; suggestions, responses vary. – Personalities, understanding and ownership, etc. can determine the outcome.
      As you say; your 3 grandchildren are precious. Continue to focus on your love for them, being there for them.
      We all have choice, and we are responsible for our own choices.
      We don’t have the power to change others. – They have to want that for themself.
      My hope is that you continue to ‘walk gently,’ pray for God’s guidance, strength
      and intervention. ….. Hand over your concerns, and also your hopes, …
      Trust in him.
      ( I hope the above helps, in some way)
      God bless you.

    Linda. I have been praying for
    My adoptive 15 year old son who has many issues with the feeling of abandonment He is a beautiful young man who cannot cope with these issues in a way that is sociably acceptable. Is there another family going through these same things and maybe we can support each other and our child through prayer

    • Shelley | | Reply

      Linda, I’m not going through the same situation as you but I will keep you in my prayers. I give prayerful and emotional support to a cousin who was adopted 52-years ago, so I am familiar with how great that sense of abandonment can be.

      I ask God to wrap his loving arms around your son, so he can feel His peaceful touch, as your son processes the awareness that is causing him so much pain and conflict right now. May you and your family gather strength as you give your son’s situation back to God and ask Him for the wisdom needed on a daily basis to support your son’s feelings of bewilderment about his birth family. I pray that you feel God’s loving presence in your life too, Linda, because you need to take good care of yourself whilst dealing with circumstances that are no doubt causing you a good deal of distress. And I pray that you are led to the right person in whom your son can confide his confusion and from whom he can slowly come to understand that when a mother’s frailty doesn’t allow her to care for her child, that the care attention and love needed by every tot is often met unconditionally by folk outside their birth family. Blessings, Shelley.

      Keep reminding him, in words, (hugs), even messages!….. how much he is loved. ……….. How much he means to you, the difference he has made in your life, and those who love him. Surround him, embrace him with your love.
      Sometimes, when I doubt, a message is ‘getting through,’ I turn to the ‘belief’ …that in the realm of being processed, some part will ‘register.’
      Affirm, acknowledge and trust in God.

    Bruce, today, I am prompted by your message, to extend my structure of prayer….. To include, those I have not net/ may never know. They are however, known to God.
    For those who ask to be joined in prayer,
    I join with you, support you and with you, bring your concerns to God.
    This addition, to prayer, refreshes and uplifts my spirit.
