That is the hardest part.
Have you ever had to wait for a bad haircut to grow out? Have you ever been anxious paint to dry? Have you worked hard and waited for that promotion? I hate waiting.
We waited the week out praying that each day Taylor would make it through in his new temporary home.
We had a busy weekend. I was reunited with an old friend. The years that have passed made our reunion all the better. I was overcome with excitement and joy and cherished spending time with her. We waited for Taylor's court date on Tuesday. As they say, the wheels of justice turn slowly. In court we waited...and waited...and waited.
Taylor goes back on March 3rd. He has been given the opportunity to seek Residential Rehab for a minimum of 6 months. He will then have the charges dropped and be given 3 years formal probation, with 2 being informal if he goes a year with no problems. If on the 3rd of March he has done nothing to get into a Rehab Facility they will put him in jail for 6 months. This is for the charges of resisting arrest, assault of a code enforcement officer and brandishing a deadly weapon last March when he was very intoxicated.
Now we WAIT some more. The Phoenix House has a 12 week wait. We will go interview on Tuesday - to be placed on a waiting list. Then we will wait to see when he can get in.
He has to appear in court on the 16th for a recent charge of being under the influence of a controlled substance. We will wait and see what will happen in this case. More waiting.
I have never been good at waiting but am learning to have patience. I think as we get older we learn that we have to wait and wait for things.
So we are now waiting to see what is God's plan for Taylor's life. As with everything it is all in His hands!
I will keep you posted as things develop!
