FORGIVENESS AND GRACE - A FAMILY REUNITED!
Rajini was bewildered. She could not come to terms with the fact that her husband had abandoned her after five years of marriage. He had left no message explaining his actions. It had been a year since she had heard from him.
Rajini was left to look after two children on her own. Financial needs and her children’s welfare forced her to hide her pain and find work. However, whenever she was alone, the pain and anger of rejection and abandonment would resurface. Rajini would spend many hours crying.
