The preciousness of our Mother's love

We hear so many different stories about biological parenting. What kind of difference does it make? Perhaps you know kids in school or in the neighborhood whose parents had to leave them behind or send them away because of a war in their country. Perhaps there has been a drug, money, or abuse problem at home. Maybe you've met someone who is searching for his or her "real parents" or who longs to fill the gap left by a loving parent who has passed on. Maybe that someone is you. Where can you find the parenting love and help you need and yearn for?

This is something I needed to know for myself. As I grew up, I was left with a feeling that I lacked a mother's love. My biological mother decided to move to a new country and take me with her. This meant taking me from a foster home where I had finally begun to feel the warmth of family life. I didn't want to leave the comfort and safety of that home. But, do you know what? I eventually did find what I was looking for—a stable, mothering love that is not dependent on a single person—through Christian Science.
