Essay on What Do You Want?

“What do you want us to do anyway?” Chris wondered.
“Nothing too hard,” Doctor Druthers smiled reassuringly. “Mainly just be yourself and let him know who you are, things you like doing, stuff about your family. Ask Johnny about himself if you think he is up for it. If things don’t go well, don’t worry, I’m not expecting miracles or anything. Today is just a simple ‘hi, this is who I am’ introduction type of deal.”
“I think I can do that,” Chris said with a bit of uncertainty coloring his voice.
“What if he asks us things we don’t know how to answer?” Jenny asked.
“Like…I don’t know,” she shrugged. “I know mom and dad have tried to tell him that our family does want him, so what if he wants us to tell him why Chris and me want him around? Or what if he wants to know how we know him when he doesn’t?”
“Those are very good questions,” Karl admitted. “As far as why you want him around, just speak from your heart and Johnny should at least able start to see that your family honestly does care about him.”
