    Judi, my heart aches for you. I remember when I didn't know where Rob was. I've repressed those times now because they are too painful to look back on. In those days I needed to know that he was okay even if he didn't want to talk to us. I hope you get that reassurance soon.

    I'm so sorry Judi. How can they stab our hearts so easily?

    When we lost touch with our daughter for a time I really had to adopt the "no news is good news" mantra. And your right Judy - Christmas is so hard. Hang in there.

    Thanks everyone! Its just so hard. We have only seen him the one time in over a year. However, at least we knew where he lived. husband and I went over last night to drop by a XMas card and invite for XMas which we are celebrating this Sat because husband and I are going out of town next week. The mailbox was full of stuff addressed to him and his girlfriend but there was nothing in the apartment - emptied out.

    He hasn't seen his son in over a year either, though seems to pay sporadic child support. We have his son every other weekend and are so blessed in that respect. It just really threw me for a loop last night.

    Thanks again...I just hate the questions at the XMas gathering.
