a message to our son

I don't know about you, but when I get a call with positive comments about one of my kids, I puff up with pride.

Our son is in a residential facility in the city near where we live.  He has been there for almost 6 moths.  Today, I got a call that was nothing but positive about him.  I am so impressed with his change, and while I realize that there will be times when he reverts to his old behaviors, I am very proud of the person he is becoming. 

Too often as parents we let the past remind us of how a child is.  We realize that we need to let go of hurtful feelings and give the child a chance to start anew.  Never forgetting of course the history.  If we don't look at and remember the history, we are doomed to repeat it.  He has come such a long way since the wild and uncontrolled force that he was 7 months ago. 

I am incredibly proud of you son, and can't wait for you to return home permanently.  See you soon buddy! Know that not a day goes by when we don't miss you.
