I just want to remind you that although we have never met, you did a wonderful thing for me. In case you don't remember, when my son pulled a knife on me and I ran from the house, he posted on this board that he's done something bad and now 'his mom' was outside and wouldn't come back in the house and he didn't know what to do. First, I have to say that it was a remarkable feeling to know that my son did reach out to 'someplace' appropiate' after doing something like that- it made me feel like maybe he felt some remorse. It also made me extremely grateful that this board was here for him to reach out to. Secondly, TM was suddenly posting asking if he had hurt me, if I was hurt at all. Thirdly, Star was posting to him that he needed to give me a little breathing room to chill out after doing something like that, then go to me and tell me just what he had posted here. I am sooooo sorry that I was already calling 911 and having him arrested just to come back to the house and find that thread later, which was eventually deleted by moderators- thank you for deleting it but thank you for giving me time to see it before it was deleted. I get that difficult child was mainly concerned about his own rear. But I also see that he took a step toward good people who were here and he knew they were here because I had come here. And he didn't try to pull some BS on you. He seemed to be asking for an answer. And DJ, you really jumped in there afterwards to help me and difficult child. I am so sorry that things happened the way they did and difficult child has ended up in his situation, albeit due to his own actions. But that thread he started and the responses and actions from mods, even though deleted now, has been the grain of hope I have carried with me for nearly three years. I just wanted to say 'Thank you' to this board and particularly to those who understand and honestly tried to help.
