This is terrific. I love the road you chose to travel. I know from experience that it is not an easy job, but that God gives you strength for each day. Be encouraged! You have invested greatly in your son. May the returns be sweet!

I love your "wind" metaphor in your second paragraph, and your "plant" metaphr further down. It's little details like that which elevate your writing. This is tender, and your own spirit of submission to God's will really shines through.

Wow! This is great! I loved the word choices throughout that brought this account to a higheer level than 'just an account' of your journey.

I hope you plan on submitting this somewhere. I think it's publish worthy and poignant for this day. Well done!

Good example of God changing someone's mind, and then changing their heart. I commend you for making this difficult but worthwhile choice. Thanks for sharing this.

This is good reading and says a lot about the author, all good stuff. The narrative voice feels comfortable with itself and makes you care.
