Margaret Etcher Theriault
Adopted at a very young age, Margaret accepted Jesus as her Saviour at the young age of 7 while attending a Christian Camp. Margaret loved to read Bible stories and sing songs about Jesus and knew that her sins were forgiven. As the years passed by and Margaret reached her 20’s, she began to question her Christianity and whether or not she was a ‘good’ Christian. Margaret lost her father suddenly when she was 28. Living on her own in a basement apartment Margaret reached the lowest point of her life. She cried a lot of tears and it was during this time that Margaret turned to scripture and began to journal. Through this she learned that Jesus is her Father and she clung to truth found in Psalm 68:5 where she read that God is a Father to the fatherless and sets the lonely in families. After marrying, Margaret began a search for her biological family and through all of the seasons of her life, Margaret has found healing and hope through her journey of faith and trust in her Heavenly Father Who she talks with all the time in prayer. Margaret hopes that her story will bring hope and help to others who may struggle with their adoption story and that they may realize that their true and lasting identity is found in God.
