Hi all; E has been home for 3 weeks now. He is 19 in October and he has matured tremendously in his 6 month program. He is respectful, helpful and tidy....very tidy. He has a full time job as a welders apprentice and works long hours, is up early 05:45 and works from 6 to 4:30. Is enrolled in school. He plans to become an electrician and then obtain a PEng. Great goals and he is putting in the effort so far. He struggles to get up and we are still working on that. At least he does get up and does go to work, this is a far cry from where we were a year ago with him on the street and couch surfing, drugged out of his mind. We have spent the weekend in the town where he went to his rehab. He spoke at the fundraiser and then we all participated in a bike ride. He completed a full 55 km ride I am so proud of him! He is speaking today at a recognition ceremony that we are all attending and he will receive a recognition certificate for completing the program. I don’t care to think beyond today at this moment. We are just enjoying a fun family weekend together and it has been a long time coming. I read your posts and keep up with all of you. I am blessed for all of your support. We go to court on Oct 11 and the crown (DA) is willing to dismiss his adult charges for his succesfulntime spent in rehab. We still have to see about his juvenile possession charges. Fingers crossed he will be able to move on from here with a clean slate. He is in a post care program and sees a therapist as well for ongoing counseling. This is very important to continued success with his healthy life.
