I am so sorry I didn't write last night, but these last few days have felt like I am living in a nightmare having to be faced with such a difficult decision. When making decisions before in Adam's care it has always been decisions I knew were going to be coming, ones that I had time to process, they usually resulted in Adam moving to the next level of healing... but this just doesn't seem on the same level of decisions we have made in the past. And it's not.
After spending hours on my knees in prayer, and a sleepless night spent in the arms of my sweet Jesus, I didn't feel traveling out of state would be good for our family at all since we just returned and have settled nicely being back in our North Carolina family and friends. Continuity and consistency in Adam's therapists is vital right now as Adam has been progressing very quickly these last few weeks. It's with a broken heart that I let all of you know that Adam will become a resident at Learning Services this week. We don't know how long he will be there, but I am praying and ask all of you to join me in praying that the licensing will come through sooner than later and he will be able to return home with Mackenzie and I.
At first it was really hard for me to not see this as a step backwards, then I was reminded that with God in control there are no steps backwards. Every step is a step toward His greater purpose. This is all part of His plan and I am holding on with white knuckles to His promises that He will work this together for His good. John 14:27 Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid. John 16:33 "I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world."
Tonight I am taking hold of God's peace and trusting Him with every fiber of my being... praying that He will give me the faith and trust I need to make it through this difficult season of our journey. There's nothing about this that seems to make sense, other than the simple truth that God is in control... and He sees the whole picture... so tonight I submit to Him and to His plans for our family. I am completely dependent on Him and that is where I want to stay. He has been, will continue to be, and is SO FAITHFUL.
Tomorrow I will be sharing our weekend in photos and an updated prayer request list.
