Out of the blue today Graham said that he wants to go back on his ADHD medication. Praise the Lord, this is miraculous news. I was told by many people that I was a bad rotten mother for not forcing him to take his meds and to keep him at home. Despite the cruelty of some of my former friends over this, I felt in my heart that forcing him to do anything would backfire. I know this kid and despite what it looks like from the outside, I trust that he WILL grow up and start making better decisions. It is going to take much longer than most kids his age, but realistically, those age peers are freshmen in college or seniors in high school. Just because he graduated 2 years early doesn't mean that he is going to mature 2 years earlier than other boys.
I adore this kid with all of my heart, and I continue to have faith that he will mature and do good in this world. It apparently is going to take longer than other kids, but I'm OK with that.
If only he would learn to wipe the counters after he makes a meal or a snack. Now that would be a real step forward!
