The time has come. This morning, Austin got on a plane with his mom to
start his new life in New York. Austin has been like a brother to
Brianna and has been my 'extra son' since they were in the second grade
together. This brilliant young man was given the opportunity to go
study in Albany at a college which offers a major in nano-technology,
his field of choice. I'm thrilled for him, but also a little nervous.
Clear across the country, so far away from his family....I'm thankful
that we have Facebook and Skype to make those miles seem less like a
chasm. Of course, he'll not be alone long--he's such a kind-hearted and
friendly guy that he'll have a new 'adopted' family on the East Coast
in no time, I'm sure of it.
