Stuck in a holding pattern
Today my wife spoke with the social worker and voiced many of our concerns about our daughter coming home. What if she attempts to run away? What if she refuses to take her meds? What if my wife and I need to go somewhere and our daughter refuses to get in the car? It's not like we can force her to go, but does that mean we become prisoners in our home and can't leave unless our daughter complies?
We began to compile a list of questions for the conference call on Friday morning. We needed to make sure we had made the necessary plans for counseling, home safety, etc. We decided that if we did end up going to pick her up in Pensacola on Friday, we would have my mother and my mother-in-law ride with us. Our daughter will not misbehave in the same way with them being present as she does with us. For now, we can only place this situation in the hands of God and allow Him to work things out, according to His perfect plan.
Lord, thank you for your unconditional love. I ask that you would soften my daughter's heart and remove her anger. Lord, let her know that we love her and only want what is best for her. As we prepare for our family session in the morning, please let us have peace about the outcome. We trust in you Lord to work all things out in our best interest, according to your plan. In Jesus name, Amen.
