I have started a little series of posts Jordan Pt. 1 and Jordan Pt. 2 . This being Pt 3 concerning my 15 year old son, Jordan. Over the summer I had a very important decision I had to make. Would everyone had made the decision I did ? Probably not. I have pondered this from all different directions. I have come to a place in my heart that I know this was the best choice for our family, this was a blessing. I really feel that God lead us in this direction, because just when I was feeling like I really had no choice left but to send my son back to a place that caused him so much anger, and hurt. I felt helpless, I'm the mom, I'm suppose to have the answers and I didn't.
I want to home school all of my boys
through high school, especially living in the district
of the city high school. I was convinced even further
when I watched the dramatic change the city high
school had on my son in just one year.
The problem, is I feel there are a
couple areas I could excel at, but honestly I'm not
the most educated person. I want my children to
have every advantage in life, I want them to feel like
they could go to the moon and back if that is what they
wanted. So, after a whole lot of thinking, I knew I
needed to at least prepare myself for homeschooling.
I would need time to soak up all the knowledge I could.
Finally, our pastor and his amazing wife
realized it was coming up on the last few weeks before
school, they could see the anxiety Jordan was starting to
have. He was exhibiting so much anger, just as he did in
the months before summer vacation. They invited us for a
cookout one evening and presented us with a solution.
I already knew before we spoke of this
that they had a special place in their hearts for Jordan,
and vice versa. Jordan and his Pastor were the best of pals. To be continued ...
