LearnFromHome Posted June 5, 2009 Share Posted June 5, 2009 (edited) My 18 year old just graduated one week ago – I am really proud of him for graduating and sticking it out with mom. Homeschooling was a wonderful experience. Last night he sat me and his father down and told us that he’s been talking to a 22 year-old women on the phone for two years and that he would like to meet her. She’ll be flying across five states to meet my son next week or today if she can find plane tickets. She’ll be staying in a Hotel for a week and my son will meet with her after work. I can tell my son has feeling for this person even though they have never met – its extremely difficult for me accept this. I have been crying since last night and did not sleep a wink. Apparently, she doesn’t come from a good family (a brother who’s been in and out of jail and an older sister that has children from different men) My son also told me this girl lost her job recently and cries to my son that she wants to see him. My son has never had a girlfriend so I’m afraid this person might take advantage of that. I don’t know what to do – I don’t want to lose my son. Sorry for posting here but I have nowhere else to turn. Update: My son came home early from work because he wanted to spend time with me. By this time I had read your posts so I was prepared to talk with him. Last night all I could do was cry. Today I sat with him and had a long talk hoping that I can break through his heart. I don’t know if it did much good but it got him thinking. His reason for keeping the secret was that he didn’t want to hurt me. I did tell him it hurt me more that he didn’t trust me enough to tell me. I told him his not only my son but his also my friend and other things that I can’t post here. He cried. As of this afternoon, she’ll arrive tomorrow (her father bought her ticket – you imagine that). Please keep me and my family in your prayers. Update: It's midnight and the women never arrived! Its been a roller coaster ride. My huband and I decided not to allow our son to put this girl in a hotel. I was going to put my values aside and allow this women to stay in my home and my husband was going to go with my son to the airport to pick her up. Since 12:00 this afternoon my son has was been hearing different excuses why this person was not at the airport. The women's father change his mind and took her plane ticket away, then left and never came back, and finally took her car away. My son is emotionally drained and hurt so please I ask you again, keep us in your prayers. Edited June 7, 2009 by LearnFromHome Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
