Sometimes, We Just Have to Hand Over Control

As I mentioned earlier this week, my friend's son has been in critical condition due to poor choices on his part.

It's easy for all of us to believe that OUR decisions regarding our children will protect them, will make them "better" people, will save our families from the tragedies of other families.

Sadly, this simply isn't true.

Our children make their own decisions, influenced by us, their peers, events in their lives, society, as well as their genetic predispositions.

I love Katie. I know she has tried to do what she has thought is best for her children. Henry is not a bad boy. He's an addict.

There but for the grace of .....go any of us.
