The one bright spot of our day, Suhn officially became ours.
The rest of the day…
Suhn cried off and on the entire day. I did too. Kory, our rock, tried to comfort us both.
She does seem to be attaching to Kory. She wants nothing to do with me.
Monday she would allow me to comfort her, but by Tuesday night she would just push me away.
My head tells me her grief is healthy. It IS a good thing. It tells me that it is also normal/common for the dad to be the “chosen one.” But rejection is hard even when it is not personal.
We have two more days in Zhengzhou before we move on to the next stage of our trip. Two days with little to do.
Thank you for your comments and prayers. Especially from the BTDTs. They give me hope which I need right now because I feel at a total loss of what to do.
My mom e-mailed me the following verses from Psalm 41. Exactly what I need to hear. I am clinging to them.
“Blessed is he that considers the poor: the Lord will deliver him in time of trouble. The Lord will preserve him and keep him alive; and he shall be blessed upon the earth: and thou will not deliver him unto the will of his enemies. The Lord will strengthen him upon the bed of languishing.”
