Our Time WIth John
We had such a nice time with John yesterday. He has grown up so much. He's lost a lot of weight too --a bout 35 pounds, and looks good -- strong and steady. He's been working out and really is doing great.
He hasn't had any incidences in several months of being aggressive.....
He's talking about the military when he finishes high school, which I think would be a great plan for him.
He has only spent one night here in the last year, but we're considering inviting him for a weekend. It would be a risk -- he could make some horrible choices with connections he has here in town, but if he does, he does.
I'm trying to let go of my need to control the situation and just let him make his choices. And hope to enjoy him for who he is regardless of what he might do and let go of that need to make sure everything will be OK if he comes home.
