Got the final stitches in the binding done on Thanksgiving, while letting the turkey get "settled". This is for our youngest son. I'm hanging on to it for a while as I am going to put it in a quilt show in March before handing it over to him - LOL. He's had a lot of crossroads in his young life (he's 24). Some he made good choices about and some not so good, but he's really turned himself around and when he hits one of those crossroads now he is making much better choices. The major crossroad that started his turn around was in his senior year of high school when in the middle of the night he came into our room with deep deep sobbing. He told us he finally figured out why he woke up angry every day of his life... it was being abandoned by his birth parents. I had been working for years and years on this as I saw it very early, but it wasn't until he came to terms with it that we could really fix it. What a moment that was. His birth mom loved him and wanted to keep him, but was single and unemployed and didn't want that kind of life for him. Birth dad, on the other hand, never owned up to being his dad. We got him when he was 3 weeks old. What a journey it has been.
