I've processed through what I believe to have been my downfall in all of this. In many ways he's been a victim of my circumstances and basically I feel I've believed he had qualities or the ability to gain qualities that he never had or had any hope of gaining without more structure than I provided. And yet, I look back and see all that's transpired in the past 5 years and can't imagine how a great deal of it could have played out any differently.
But...here we are...and from here we will continue and move forward. By the grace of God, as always.
