As important as mapping out this strategy was, a lot more was going on as we met week after week. We were sharing ourselves with each other- our life experiences, our social connections, our time. We were building community and forming relationships. Sitting at the Table together mattered. Over the summer, our Brother began working full-time and began to question his plan to go to college, which he had previously identified as his number one goal. With no mention of his change of mind to the Table Members, our Brother decided not to enroll at LSUA in the fall and to continue with his job. Unsure how the Table would react to his new plan, he stopped communicating!!
