Broken relationships are a part of life.
But where there is brokenness, beauty and redemption are often right around the corner. That can be tough to believe, especially when it’s those closest to you who’ve done the most damage.
A touching video from Love What Matters proves there is hope, no matter how deep the hurt. The video shows a young girl opening her final present on Christmas morning, a note from her mother explaining she would soon have her stepdad’s last name.
While the details of the relationship were not shared by the family, it doesn’t matter. Here’s a young girl who, for one reason or another, no longer has her biological father in her life. Surely this has been a difficult road filled with resentment and pain – but just look at the beautiful relationship that God had waiting for her. He may not be her biological father, but as she uttered the words “thank you, daddy” during their tearful embrance, there is no doubt who she considers her dad.
The post, written by the mother, reads:
“Here is a video of my daughter opening her final gift Christmas morning. After 5 years of her being loved and cared for by her stepdad, she received a letter and court document that on February 14, 2017 she will officially have his last name!”
Proof positive that God can heal every broken heart, and always is working all things for good.
