"That's a heck of a deal, and I'd be doing you a disservice if I told you not to take it. Best of luck to you going forward."
I look at this as further confirmation that we are going in the right direction.
We never did hear back from Lindfield, so we decided to make an appointment with Pacific to tour the campus and meet the coaches. I forgot to mention that Hayden also applied to be on Pacific's track team and they accepted him as well! Another really good sign is that both Coach Craft and the two track coaches were personally going to the admissions office checking on Hayden's application status. And when he finally got accepted we heard the news from Coach Craft in a text. He was just as excited as we were. To me this shows that they really want Hayden there and this makes me feel really, really good.
I'm so thankful to God for answering our prayers and giving all of us such a peace about it. We still need to get the finances in line, but we feel like the Lord will work all of this out for us too. I'm so thankful that my son is going to achieve his dream of playing college football. It has been a long and stressful journey, but God has been with us through it all and has opened the doors to the right place for Hayden.
