LETTERS TO LORI "Little Girl Lost"



Daughter of a doctor and teacher, granddaughter of a Pastor and missionary and yet Lori's life choice was to use drugs-not only affecting her life and that of her son, but also, her parents, family and friends. What went wrong?

Lori is beautiful, bright and talented. How did this happen in such a strong family? Read a mother's words to her daughter as she accepts the fact that this is the last hope to save her daughter. All the programs, tears, begging and all the love have not helped Lori to find her way. Now that hope, hope for Lori to become the young woman her mother knows God has called her to be, comes through a prison sentence.

Listen and learn what this mother goes through, not only when dealing with Lori's drug use, but how she gets through the agony of wondering if her daughter will ever be saved from her addiction.

God does have a wonderful plan for your life. He cares about every concern you have. He hears your cries to Him for help. He loves you, accepts you right where you are this day and offers you hope and restoration for your hurts and failures. God is total love, mercy and grace.
