This is forever.

This is forever.

That was the thought that just popped out of nowhere as I looked down at my beautiful son. He was standing there, doing his own thing. He wasn’t having a tantrum or screaming or misbehaving. It was a quiet moment but he wasn’t there with me. He was in his own world all by himself. A flash of him as a ten-year-old, then a teenager, then an adult all went through my head- still alone.

These moments always catch me off guard and this time was no different as I felt my eyes brim with tears.

And it was then that I made the decision to go for it. We’re going to the Thoughtful House- one way or another! There is no way I could look at Brian as an adult and say to him that I didn’t try everything that was offered to me. I love him too much to not take this opportunity.
