This year, I’m in a FB group for this college for parents. So many questions… Ones I didn’t even think about… About the dorms, transportation, lots of details.
It’s triggered a little mommy-guilt in me… Was I not supportive enough? Should I have gone with him to settle in? Should I have bought him a dorm minifridge? Did he have everything he needed? (Thank goodness for those international student-sheets!)
But the story I’m telling myself if that he is a capable young man.
And he is. Well-traveled and able to handle unexpected bumps in the road. His faith is strong (and weak, and strong. . .)
Our relationship is honest and he knows he can always text me. He’s handling his independence well.
