19-staying

It's soo weird that background looks yellow when it's the same color as the cardstock IRL!!! So for Case File No. 7 I did a page about my son's decision to live with his father. I've been praying constantly on this situation and one day when just the two of us were home I decided to have a heart to heart with him. When he told me that he feels that he's ready to have sex and he knows he'll have more freedom to do that with his dad I rained on his parade! I told him that sometimes a parent's job is to take the hard road and my job is to stop him from making the wrong life changing decision. So...I forbade him from going. Surprisingly he said he wasn't angry...just a little disappointed. He'd been praying on it to and I think he was starting to see what a huge mistake he was making...PRAISE GOD!!! So this page will be next to the other in his scrapbook, celebrating the fact that he's still here with us!!! As a matter of fact, the piece of picture I used here is the other part of the one I used on that page! Only God knew that I was saving it to use on this page!!! My EVIDENCE: I used one rosette, LOTS of circles (LOVE circles soo much!!!) and my title was kreated with wood letters. For my TESTIMONY I journaled by making a top ten list of reasons he NEEDED to stay! TFL and thanx for all your support while we were going through this craziness!!!

As always I love your page. I'm so glad you were able to talk it out with your son and he was so open to you. Shows there is a strong foundation to build on. So glad things are going in the right direction.

I remember your page for case number 7. I'm glad your son is starting to come around. I love the design and the alphas on your page.
