But Why

“But why does Adrian have to go?  Why can’t he just live with us?”

That’s the question the 8 year old asked me yesterday.  I gave him the answer he’s heard me give a hundred times now, to practically everyone I talk to.

He needs more structure.  He’s wearing poor Mom out.  They’ll help him with his behavior and learning new things.

And all those things are true.  But as I thought about it, I realized there’s still lots of why questions under all those answers.

Why don’t I have enough time, energy and patience to keep this up?

Why is he built to need more structure, attention, activity and intervention than I can provide?

 

I don’t have answers for these.  Only God knows.  But honestly, I’m satisfied with that. 🙂
