I love this boy. He is so sweet, contemplative, observant & smart. I just had to share these photos that capture his beautiful nature. He started his first swim lessons last night & was really traumatized by going under water so much. He held onto my neck so tightly, it both opened & broke my heart simultaneously. It’s one of those mom moments where I know it will be best if he pushes through his fear & discomfort so that he can be a confident swimmer (& not a statistic), but will he really . . . ? or will it just be one of those unknowns from his childhood that he spends hours in therapy trying to discover why he is emotional unavailable in relationships & showing up for his dreams. I guess all I can do is listen to my heart & trust.
