Adopted at Birth By a Jewish Family

Have You Seen This?

Denalee Chapman December 31, 2014


Adopted at birth by a Jewish family, Rebecca was raised with tender love and care by her adoptive family. She was raised as one of their own. Living the Jewish life, she experienced a Bat Mitzvah and all other traditional aspects of being Jewish. Rebecca, though, never quite felt like she belonged. She was teased and left out of the social life among her Jewish peers. She couldn’t figure out where she fit in with God’s plan. Then she went on the search for her birth parents, knowing that this had the potential to give her answers and help her “fit in.”

This is Rebecca’s testimony of acceptance and love. Today, Rebecca and her husband have five children, two of whom are adopted.
