I have not posted about my son in a long time. He was released from juvie on Oct.4 th. He served 11 months in a secure treatment facility. The program was excellent and difficult at the same time. He had a difficult time reaching his levels in order to be released. His original out date was in July. I would love to say that things at home were perfect but they are not. I suspect that if it were not for him being on intense supervision probation, things would be much worse. He gets off probation in the middle of June. He will be old enough to leave home and be on his own. I am doing my best to detach and let it play out. He is finding out that I will not rescue him nor will I work harder than he does in order to accomplish all the things he needs to do in order to satisfy his probation conditions.
