My brother wound up leaving this morning as well. He packed most of his things and left without saying a word. I don’t know if he is heading back to his home state or has gone to stay with my mother across town. I assume that when he is ready he will contact my husband and I. My husband said that we would give him till the weekend to clear his mind. But if he doesn’t come back or contact us, then we have done all that we will do and he wont have the invitation of coming back and living with us.
I was upset to see my niece leave and I was frustrated with my brother and his girlfriend, but their lives are their responsibility. We presented them with other options than the one’s they chose but ultimately the final decision was theirs. I wish them God’s grace and mercy. I am very happy to have my home back with just myself, my husband and children.
