We the parents along with family and friends line ourselves along the road helping from the sidelines with moral support. It is of course his journey, his life decision. Our son M for all the time we've known him has never opted for the easy route. Time and time again he continues to choose the challenging challenges. We will all learn from the sidelines what it is our son chooses to share with us, meanwhile we too shall continue to grow.
Letting go is a lifetime lesson, as is the quest for knowledge. Yes it all is a beautiful thing.
