Yesterday marked a year since the death of Lydia Schatz at the hands of her parents. There are so many layers of sadness in her story. Such a totally unnecessary death of a precious child. And brought on by following the teachings of To Train Up a Child as written by Michael and Debi Pearl of No Greater Joy Ministries.

I grieve for all involved. It’s sickening, really. I cannot even imagine what this child lived through…nor can I imagine what her siblings must feel. Particularly the other adopted child. Please pray for the children.
And while you’re praying, please pray for the families and children who have yet to be connected. Several families are currently in Ukraine enduring the process to adopt one of God’s specially-created children. Unfortunately stories like Lydia’s cause concern to judges who make the final decision. Which of us would have denied her the chance to be part of a family? Who could know the outcome?
Remembering Lydia Schatz today.
And also praying for new families to be created.
