Yesterday I asked for prayers for both my daughters and their mental health issues. Today Patricia's father called to inquire if she could possibly move from Texas to Ohio to live with or near me, very near. She is paranoid schizophrenic, not been taking medication, acts and dresses bizarre, shaves her head, wears camo shorts, punches holes in walls lately, etc. You get the picture.
I am somewhat familiar with services in this area because I have been an advocate, served in NAMI, and mentored a bipolar single mom who has lost custody of her five children twice in two years. God has prepared me for this perhaps.
I do not know what Patricia will decide. Pray for me. She was the first child to come into my home at age ten as a foster child, from the local children's unit of the mental health hospital.
I trust the wisdom God will grant me. I trust that all doors and windows needed will be opened. I will need strength, likely all the gifts of the Holy Spirit.
