Gone, But Hopefully Not Forgotten!
Hello to everyone here at Wealthy Affiliate!
I have been gone for several weeks and I have missed you.
The last few weeks have been both very rough and productive. Let me explain.
We had a death of a very good family friend. My wife took it very hard and my special needs son took it hard. It was difficult for him to understand. I spent a great deal of time doing special family things.
Another really big blow occurred just a few days before when we lost our legal battle for guardianship of our four year old grandson. He had lived with us over the last seven months when his mother abandoned him at our doorstep. She had no contact with us for over two months and she left him with no medical paperwork or much in the way of clothes or toys. We had not seen him prior to this.
Our oldest son was not able to be a part of his life and he currently could not support him so we took on the task of being parents again at age 53.
We fell in love with him and we did our best to help him over his behaviors and lack of speech. We discovered that he had a history of neglect and abuse and he barely spoke even though he was four. All he did was babble in jiberish.
We got him into a special school and helped him as best we could. He was speaking four and five word sentences and was rapidly catching up.
We had several witnesses and a doctor who were going to testify at the hearing but the judge would not hear any of the testimony or evidence. He gave Cayden back to his mother who lives in another state.
We were devastated but there was nothing more that we could do.
Despite all of this, I have still managed to do something productive every day on my business.
I have been writing and creating and building my business. I am still planning on quitting my regular jobs and working full time on my business by the end of the summer.
I wanted to share with you what has been going on in my life and to drive home the point that you want to strive for your goals no matter what. You may walk or run or even crawl on your journey towards success, but the only way that you can fail is to give up.
