Daughter Restored is a platform for women impacted by fatherlessness around the world to share their stories. This space exists in order for each of us to not only be vulnerable, but also to encourage one another in the healing process. Daughter Restored is not a space to bash our fathers or wallow in sadness over what was lost, but to acknowledge the impact that fatherlessness has on women, and restore what was lost through Christ.
