Joseph’s story is the story of the unsung Christmas hero. He’s no different than any adoptive, foster or stepparent today. Loving a child is a choice. More importantly, families are made by God’s love and not only by biology.
What is family anyway? It’s the bonds of fellowship and care we have with others. Human connection makes family in so many ways. In all of them, we have the opportunity to love and nurture each other. Family is family; the specifics truly don’t matter.
