Hi, I’m Joni Eareckson Tada. Many find it incredible to believe, but my friend Deborah and her husband have eight children, most of them adopted with disabilities. Deborah says people ask her all the time how she manages to care for so many kids with disabilities. And Deborah’s response? She says, “Look at the sad shape we were in when God adopted us. And if God's love accommodated our weaknesses, surely we can accommodate the limitations of our adopted kids.” Wow! Deborah is so right. The love of God covers a multitude of our shortcomings, not to speak of our sins. So let’s extend that same mercy to others who are weak. Whether it’s a family member, a neighbor, a co-worker or a friend at church. And if you need a little inspiration to do so, visit our TV page at joniandfriends.org and watch on-line an episode we produced on Deborah’s family. You’ll be inspired.
