Road To Recovery …

December 10, 2009 Gwen 4 Comments

I am sorry that I am late in posting today, but it has been an emotional day and trying to find the right words that will be honest, encouraging, and from the Lord often takes some time when you are in the midst of a trial … You see we got news today that our daughter’s skull/ scalp replacement surgery was canceled for next week … The specially made expanders that were ordered over 3 months ago won’t be ready … This is just another road block in our journey to physically healing Maggie … I am sad for her that yet again she will have to WAIT … I am exhausted from mentally preparing for next week only to be told to WAIT …

I hope to always paint a true picture of the journey we have been on to bring home our special needs angel … It is not for the faint of heart, but it is for those seeking to become closer to the almighty Father and for those who want their SOCKS blessed off … My Maggie is a miracle to us … She shows us what it means to be a true survivor …

So we will gear up for yet another curve, detour in the journey or I guess if I choose it could be just the scenic route (that may be my attitude tomorrow) …

As you are deciding to adopt a SN angel always look at the journey God and your child have you on, not the JOURNEY YOU WANT TO BE ON …

Blessings !!!

    Oh, Gwen! I am so sorry to hear Maggie's surgery was delayed, that has to be emotionally exhausting! I still remember the days leading up to Isabelle's open heart surgery, it was so tough! And that was almost 4 years ago! I so hope you're able to put this behind all of you soon 🙂

    I love what you said about your socks being blessed off by adopting a special needs child… these kids are truly amazing!

    Hugs to you on this tough day!

    Oh Gwen, I am so sorry to the news of this delay. But you know, that gives Matthew more time to pray for sweet Maggie! I am reminded of the song lyrics, "Strength will rise as we wait upon the Lord, we will wait upon the Lord!"
    Love & Blessings from Hong Kong,
