I so understand your son's situation. Here is Christopher's story. He had ADD and dyslexia way back even as a young child. I would sit and cry with him in 3rd grade because he couldn't read much less complete his homework. By 4th grade he was reading on a 2nd grade 3rd month level. Sylvan Learning had just opened a center in the town he went to school in so we signed him up. By 5th grade he was reading on a 5th grade 6 month level (that was after 9 mos of Sylvan Learning Center!!). Eventually, we did put him on ADD meds. By Sophmore year in high school he longer wanted to take them but coming off of them one of them led him into depression and he graduated with a 1.7 GPA from high school and quite depressed, and angry. I have asked many prayers from all of you for him. In May 2011, I was at the Divine Mercy in Stockbridge MA, on the weekend of Divine Mercy and consecrated him and asked ST Faustina to help him. I prayed for a whole year. I was at wits end. He had gotten into trouble and literally had the choice to go one way or the other. He graduated from community college and 2 years ago he attended college in Myrtle Beach SC for his last 2 years. He spent every waking moment studying and working hard and was in the library until 3 AM -Saturday nights included!! He just graduated top of his class with a 3.9 GPA and several honors. We attended his graduation this May on Mother's Day weekend. I could never have anticipated any of this and yet God orchestrated it so timely - a perfect Mother's Day gift!! I am grateful to everyone for their prayers. Many times it takes years to get an answer but what joy I have had!!
God Bless all of you!
