Worthy of Belonging

“When you hold those perfect little babies in your hand, our job is not to say, ‘Look at her, she’s perfect.  My job is just to keep her perfect, make sure she makes the tennis team by 5th grade and Yale by 7th grade.’ That’s not our job. Our job is to look and say, ‘You know what?  You’re imperfect and you’re wired for struggle, but you are worthy of love and belonging.’  That’s our job.”
