|On Seth's birthday earlier this year.|
Josh being home during this time has had another positive effect for Seth. You see, at 16, Seth has become pretty independent. That is our job as parents....to produce independent young adults. At diagnosis, I felt that independence slipping away. Enter Josh. Big brother can "hang out" where parents really can't. We would have never asked Josh to stay home to help us. God provided in a very strange way for things we didn't even know we needed.
Josh will leave again for college, probably next fall. That's the way it should be, and I'm excited about his future. But for now, it's nice having the brothers together again.
