What do we do when trauma leaves us with feelings of rejection, abandonment, and a depreciated sense of self-worth? Can God heal a broken heart?
For as long as she could remember, Lexie was confident that her adoptive family loved her. Still, she wanted to know more regarding her adoption journey. Questions came up about her birth mother which then led to doubts about her individual self-worth. Concerns seemed to multiply as time passed. Soon, Lexie found herself riddled with questions, some with potentially disheartening answers.
“Why did my mother give me up?”
“Did she not want me?”
“Did she not love me?”
In an interview with Focus on the Family, Lexie illustrates how hearing the truth helped her overcome rejection and depression after adoption.
