Sometimes I feel like I have failed my kids. Especially the 17 year old. He was 11 when his Dad was diagnosed….middle school. The past 6+ years have been full of cancer, hospice, his sisters teen pregnancy, having a newborn in the house, and his little sister. All of a sudden he is a SENIOR in high school and I feel like I completely failed him. He is so smart and his math skills impress me. Today he mentioned wanting to go to Virginia Tech and that he’d like to do something in the field of software design, computer science or electrical engineering. If Mike was well he’d know how to make that happen.
