Well, difficult child is now 29 and in prison for an alcohol fueled stupid night which resulted in him receiving an 8.5 yr sentence of which he must serve 7 years. Its been years since I've been here though I've been a member since 2001 I think....gosh 13 years have come and gone. I feel like I have moved so far from my days of complaining about high school. We kept trying to tell him bad things would happen and the consequences would get worse - well I think this is about tops it! I've scanned the forums every once in awhile - lots of old faces with some newbies too. I wasn't sure whether even to post as I don't want to scare anyone - lol. Know I thank you all for your compassion and caring especially in the beginning. Thanks so much.
