Are You Enough? Is Your Child Enough?

 

Are you enough for you?

Do you question yourself when you are fostering a difficult child?

Do you wonder sometimes about your child you adopted?  If you had  known how this would turn from sweet baby to difficult child?

I have.

I still do, about twice, or three times for four or more a month.

But, then again I did the same thing with my biological children.

When you foster or adopt this sweet little innocent baby, or toddler, you cannot imagine they will grow up into teenagers, or pre-teens that begin to manifest some of the behaviors they learned or inherited.

Your biological children have inherited behaviors.  They have personality traits passed down, physical features and talents and abilities.

So do your foster or adopted children.

It IS nurture and nature.  In both situations.  Biological and fostered or adopted.

When you think “nature” is being difficult what are your thoughts about that?

Do you think you are not enough to cope with the difficulties arising?

Or do you think your child in not enough?

Your thoughts of “not enough” are wrong in both counts.

YOU ARE ENOUGH!

YOUR CHILD IS ENOUGH!

It’s our beliefs about ourselves that are tainted with thoughts passed down from previous generations.  Same with our kids.  We pass some of our thoughts to them.  Some work, some don’t.

Same with our foster or adopted kids.

Wrong behaviors are generational.  They are inherited, but, they can be changed.  By you, and in doing that, in your children.  Biological or other.

It is how you think about your child and yourself as to whether you think you are enough.

I can tell you, YOU ARE ENOUGH, YOUR CHILD IS ENOUGH!

If you struggle with being enough go here.
