    He called at 7:00 this morning, I was in the shower but he left a voice mail with his cell number. We talked for a few minutes, he sounds well, is working full time and likes the job. He said he wondered why I never answered his last message because he thought he had given me his email address. He was waiting to hear from me and thought I had changed my mind. I told him I had been waiting to hear from him and had thought the same thing. Anyway, now we have each other's cell numbers and I told him I was happy things were going well for him and to try to keep in touch. That was about it. It was strange to hear his voice. He was 16 when he left and still had a kid's voice that cracked. I feel better knowing he has my number.

    Your conversation sounds like it was a good one. Your mind should be more at ease now.

    Maybe this will be a start of a slow, slow recovery.

    That's just great! :smile:

    It is a good sign that if, as your difficult child believed, you had decided to end the contact, your difficult child would have respected that.

    Wishing well, catwoman!
