Over the years we have had many struggles with friendship. People who say they are your friends quickly leave when something better comes along. The search for a true friend begins when a person realizes that they do not want just any friend. They want a friend who is willing to be the kind of person that they too, want as a friend. My son found this true friend. He was one that despite his and my son’s differences still took time to listen to my son’s needs and made him know that he cared. A friend is someone who is willing to take time for someone else. Someone who listens, is kind, has fun, shares, and never gives up on you. We have learned through our challenges with friendship that What is most important is to be the kind of great friend that someone is searching for too.
