Father time

For nearly two years all three of my children have been teenagers, this was a rather exciting phase for me as a Youth Worker …. akin to a Vulcanologist finding magma emerging through a vent hole in the back garden (though less dangerous).
But today Haddon hits 20 and leaves teendom behind.
His faith, humour and courage have brought him a long way. From surviving against the odds through his first night, on through epilepsy (thankfully no longer an issue) and living with the considerable challenges that Cerebral Palsy brings day by day, into his twenties; a driving licence and a place at residential college. He has taught me much.
Captains Log Supplemental: Coolest coincidence …. Haddon was on an outing with his college to Worcester where I happened to be today for a couple of meetings. We actually bumped into each other which was fantastic!!
