The Spirit of Rejection

Child abuse is a huge challenge that we as Safety/Foster Parents face daily. The horrific spirit of rejection and depression runs deep in its victims.

All children are special, trusting, and very impressionable.   Abused children are quiet, afraid to speak out because they are ashamed, have low esteem, and most of all afraid. But your love can heal these deep wounds!.

Mom/Dad tell your abused child … “it’s NOT YOUR FAULT”!   Encourage them to stop listening to the past and the discouraging words that were spoken to them.  Begin to daily speak new positive and encouraging words over him/her. Childhood is precious, but fleeting and needs to be enjoyed; filled with innocent joy, unconditional love and discovery of life; with guidance on his/her path to become a well-adjusted adult.

About Helouise Steenkamp

I'm a 45 plus, Devoted Wife and Mother. Adonai has blessed us with two Amazingly Wonderful Sons. We have had the privilege of being Place of Safety parents for 1 1/2 years and there after foster parents to a Darling Princess for 5 years. She was reconciled with her biological parents in Dec'14. Our hearts are still aching from the loss, but we know that as we trust Adonai with our salvation, so we can trust Him with her future. We welcomed our new 4 year old foster child on 05JUN'15.
