Hey, Praying Mom, thanks for asking about my son, Matt. Thursday night he called and it was the first time since he left home that I thought this might work out for him. He was up beat and actually excited. It really made all the difference for me. As you know, if your kids are happy you are happy. He is about two hours from my folks and I think he is going to try and take a train up to see them. Tomorrow he is going to the mall with a bunch of guys so things are looking up. Thanks again and I hope all is well with you.
Praying Mom..... my heart hurt for you! I could not imagine!! Thank GOD their are wonderful families out there like that! We did that for my brother in 1979 with a SR friend of his. I cannot imagine not hearing from Brandon for all that time and look so forward to his PIR date and he isn't even there until 8/15. My prayers are with you and I am always here to chat.... we can do this!!!
