Yes, it can be scary! One works to raise them properly, prays alot, and then hopes for the best! My virgin daughter moved to Washington, D.C., to work 7 years ago upon completing college. She asked me if I had any words of advise for her. All I could tell her was, “Spread your wings, not your legs.” Her response was a resounding, “Moooooomm!” It seemed to have worked, however. She just celebrated her fifth wedding anniversary with her husband (her first and only “partner”) and 3.5 year old daughter.
Best of luck to your family!
