Interesting how time changes our perspective. For so many prospective and new parents, FFS is an intervention for their child, stemming from fear and desperation and with fragile hope for what might be. But for alumni parents who wrote to me recently to let me know their daughter is just 10 weeks from graduating from college, they described it as time spent together.
I continue to hold tenderly to the time we spent together over our daughter Anna at The Family School. I still see the school as a haven of second chances…a place that values and invests in the heart of an individual.
And that really is what it is – time we spend together – partnering, struggling, praying, hoping, striving, loving, teaching, guiding, crying, celebrating…
We are in this together – and it is time spent together.
