Your Way

i'm left w/empty hands, a heavy heart, and a longing for Jesus. I need His way. It's perfect....why would we not want any other way. Oh Lord...embrace your child...embrace me.

I know that it must have been a very difficult decision to place Brooke in the hospital while you are waiting for her to go to Glenwood. I commend you for doing that. I was a staff that worked with an austic child a few years ago and after 6 hours I would be exhausted. I can't imagine living with a child 24 hours a day 7 days a week. I often thought that as a mother you have to make your children happy first and foremost. I have come to realize that you have to make yourself happy first and foremost because then you can be a healthier and happier person for everyone around you and it is a domino effect. I know that you will miss Brooke and will be torn with your decision but as a person who works with people with disabilities I commend parents who turn to others for support. You will see progress in Brooke I know it, not because she is not with you but because she will be around staff that will be rejuvinated each shift and will have the motivation because they have had a break, unlike yourself who has been coping with her everyday. I will pray for you and your family.
