Every day, it dawns on me a little more what a waiting game this is. Even though we were told Vernon has begun the awakening stage, its also been suggested that he won’t be ‘with us’ by the time Maki takes off for New Zealand for the summer on Thursday night. I know he had wanted to at least say good bye. But he will be gone for only a couple of months, so hopefully skype and texts will fill in the blanks as we go through the next phase.
Anyway, I can’t tell you how proud I am of this kid. I just wish the timing had worked out better. But as he, his mum, and I have discussed, the timing may not be so wrong in the end, since we have no idea how easy his transition will be.
Please keep praying for a gentle transition for Vernon and please keep Maki on your hearts. He and his dad have always been connected in a deep and quiet way.
