Well, I was finally finishing up my a A Child’s Waiting blog when shazzam! The whole thing disappeared. I’ll try to get it reconstructed and up in the next day or so. In the meantime, here’s a few thoughts on Forever Family.
RELIGIOUS CULT 1 :
Church of Bible Understanding (formerly ‘The Forever Family”): Founded by Stewart Traill 1971 as the Forever Family. Abusive
Sample Activity :
Then one day, Barbara came to work with the bad news! Some one who didn’t like the group of communers- set the fellowship on fire while they were out witnessing! I was horrified and invited them to move into my house. My house was actually too small, but they told me that they found a big house and since they had no furniture etc, that perhaps I would consider moving in with them… was supposed to be getting married the following month, so I thought why not. I wanted to get my boyfriend saved and perhaps, by moving there, he would get saved.
RELIGIOUS CULT 2
Mormon Church: The family is the fundamental unit of society and the primary setting in which children develop virtue. God has placed families at the center of His eternal plan for the happiness of His children.
* preparing and eating meals together can stimulate conversation.
* Adopting a family hobby
NOTE: Though Presbyterian, my family took, this directive to heart. We combined my mother’s chipped beef on pancake dinners with our special family hobby: arguing at the dinner table. Hardly an evening passed without searing discussions on personal short-comings, accompanied by accusations, martyrdom, and self-pity all performed to the beat of a good table pounding.

RELIGIOUS CULT 4
I‘m not fond of the term “forever family.” Maybe it’s because I’m a therapist and have seen too many “forever families” break up. Maybe it’s because, as an adoptee, I have trust issues. Or maybe it’s because saying “forever family” evokes the uncertainty of it. Do non-adoptive parents tell their kids they are in a “forever family?” I don’t think so…Marlou Russell, :Ph.D. Adoption Counselor.
Don’t promise an adoptee something you can’t deliver. A parent can’t guarantee that s/he won’t die or won’t get divorced. The world is filled with random events and situations that are out of our control. Can a parent promise a “forever family?” Not really.
