Recently, I watched a court proceeding online concerning Rachel Canning, a senior honor student at Morris Catholic High School, who was suing her parents. Rachel claimed her parents "constructively abandoned" her, mostly because she would not break up with her boyfriend and follow her parents’ rules.

“I will not send you back,” the social worker told her newly adopted son Taylor.

Social worker Connie Going from Florida had placed over 1,000 Tampa Bay-area foster kids with adoptive parents when Taylor came along. Taylor and his siblings were thrown into the foster care system in 2003 because his drug-addicted parents neglected them. Taylor and his siblings were adopted, but Taylor’s anger issues caused the adoptive families to send him back to the children’s homes.

Last spring I had the honor of standing up in my cousin Rebecca’s wedding. Don’t you just love weddings? Marriage is one of God’s greatest blessings and I always feel so inspired and joyful (and okay maybe a bit sappy) when I’m able to attend one. Seeing her walk down the aisle with her veil over her beautiful face is so symbolic. She walks not just towards her husband-to-be but towards a new life. She walks towards a new covenant and in that, a new covering.
