I relayed all that to his therapist and she spoke with him about it in their regular session. When we had family therapy we discussed it a bit more, and incorporated what he's learned about willingness and radical acceptance into the conversation. Christian was able to admit to what had happened without falling apart or blaming anyone else, and let me tell you that is a big deal all by itself.
My heart swelled with pride. I know she doesn't know us or our journey, but I sure did appreciate what she said!
Last night after the kids were in bed Chris and I were talking more about these skills that our family is learning together: willingness, radical acceptance, and coping ahead just to name a few. We are choosing to look on the bright side and think about how much better we'll all be for making this a part of who we are now.
One step closer.
I'm so thankful for them.
