First meeting at WCSG's Father Daughter Banquet

Rebecca generously shared this heart-warming story and gave us permission to share it with all of you!

Rebecca shares:

I never knew who my biological father was. Neither did my mom. I had a wonderful father who adopted me when I was 1. But I always wondered who I looked like. For Christmas this year I received a 23 and me DNA test kit. I was about to embark on an adventure to see if I could find my bio dad! 

Waiting was so hard. About a month and a half later I got my results and saw that I had a half sister. I messaged her and said, "Hey, we are sisters!" She responded "I bet I know who your dad is!"

It’s been so beautiful because I prayed and prayed he would be alive, that I could meet him, and that he would embrace me. He has! He’s a born again believer and so am I. God has surely blessed us. We have spoken on the phone many times but [finding a time] to meet was difficult. I live in Mount Pleasant and he lives in Grand Rapids. I have 5 children and he drives cab 7 days of the week! He’s a busy guy. So when he invited me to WCSG's Father Daughter Banquet I immediately said "yes." 

It was one of the most beautiful memories of my life. On top of it I love Austin French and Freedom Hymn was a song I clung to when I became sober.

The first hug, the first picture together, and our first concert all [happened] at the Father Daughter Banquet of 2024!

Though you have made me see troubles, many and bitter, you will restore my life again; from the depths of the earth you will again bring me up. You will increase my honor and comfort me once more.
