we have a 19 year old adopted son….we got him when he was 7 months old…he is wonderful. smart, intelligent, compassionate, and athletic. but in the last four years he got confused and angry and began listening to the lies of the Evil one. he got out of high school, went to Marine boot camp… then SOI…and now he is making such poor decisions and choices. he is UA from base and has not checked in. he doesn’t seem to realize that if he is dishonorably discharged this will totally screw up college if he wants to do it, jobs, his future.
what does one do with a Prodigal child? we will not enable him. we will love him with boundaries….ones that he sees only as us telling him how to live his life. what ever. so we pray and wonder when he will wake up to the love of God and us. and wait.
