Prayers Please!

Hello,stamping friends!
I need prayers once again....I know,you are probably tired of my request!
First, my hubby is in Texas(we currently live in GA) ....he will be doing an interview all day today......if he gets the job,we will be moving back to TX,where I was born and raised!!! I feel really good about this,and I'm so very proud of him.
Another thing I need prayers for is my son,Calin. As I've told you before,he has been having trouble for the last 3 years mostly....but all his life. He was diagnosed ADD when he was little,but apparently they didn't diagnose him right. He is now 17 and recently was diagnoses Aspergers....which is a form of Autism. He will be a senior next year...you know how rough High School can be anyways....well it's been really hard for him....he has been bullied and picked on and so forth.....he has always then, bullied and picked on his little siblings too. I guess some sort of retaliation/defense mechanism.
The long and short of it, is since school has been out for the summer it seems he has gotten more aggressive with my little ones. He is getting worse. I have been telling the therapist all along about this behavior. When I recently told him about my youngest son getting a black eye from him,he said we needed to do something....or I could perhaps get all of my children taken away,since I haven't 'done' anything about it.(not that I allowed it....he was talking about ,like calling the police or something....which I promise you if I felt like that needed to happen,I would have!)
Well,I've had to make a very hard decision recently. I have decided to let him move into my mom's house. She lives in TX with my step dad. As parents,we are often faced with hard decisions about our kids,but I just feel heart broken. I know he is going to my mom's and will be well taken care of,it makes it a little easier....but it just bothers me that we won't be a true family anymore. I won't get to be apart of his senior year and so forth.
I just ask for prayers over Calin and my whole family in dealing with this transition in life!!! Thank you so much. I have found some sweet online friends and it means alot when someone you don't really 'know' who is willing to give up a few moments of their time to pray for you and your family!!! God Bless,
Holley

Holley, I will deffinately be praying for your family. I can't imagine what a tough decision this must have been for you.

Courtney said...

Your family will be in my prayers. I am so sorry that you have to go through this. Good luck to your hubby on his job interview.

Life is always full of difficult situations and difficult decisions to make. I understand your situation needs resolve and you're making the best choice you can under the circumstances. Your smaller children need protection as much as your older son does. I hope this is a good solution for everyone concerned, and my thoughts and prayers are with you. If your husband lands this job, perhaps you can all be together again and get more hands-on help from your mom. ((Hugs))

I'm so sorry about the situation with your son. Looking on the bright side, however....at least you have family you trust and who love him that can step in and help out. This is a true blessing.

Will keep you all in my thoughts and prayers.

I'm definitely keeping you in my thoughts! I can't imagine what you must be going through right now! All I can say is hang in there- you've made a tough decision for the benefit of your entire family which says a lot about how much you care for all of them.

Praying for the outcome of your husband's interview. Hope you'll get to be closer to your parents and Calin.

I'm sorry for the situation you're in. Please know lots of prayers are coming for resolution (hopefully a move will help him see what was going wrong), comfort (for having him be away from your family), and for success with the interview (so you can hopefully be closer to him).
