“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. 🙂
