A new generation of families.
Someone said to me yesterday, “The unconventional family is becoming the new norm.” Divorced, blended, unchurched, de-churched, and “baby mama,” are all a reality. Grandparents, foster parents, relatives and friends are all raising “someone else’s” children, right here in America. I talked to a young woman just the other day who said, “It shocked me when I became a volunteer in a wealthy church how handy my counseling degree would be with those kids. They are abused, neglected and isolated.”
The question is this? How will we choose to view them? I had the opportunity last month to speak to the audience at the D6 Family Conference and share my thoughts. Would love to hear your thoughts!
Thanks for loving students,
