    I cant tell many details but Jamie has a friend and her son recently got into some trouble with the law. This boy is a teen and bipolar. I cant go into what he did but lets just say that its bad and the mom is really upset.

    Jamie is very concerned about his friend and went way out of his way to open up to her and tell her all about his life, our life and how she isnt alone, she isnt a horrible mom and things like mental illness happen to the best of people. He told her all about how he has ADHD, his brother is bipolar, his mom is bipolar and how he knows just how she feels. He gave me her number and told her that I would talk to her. He told her that I am the smartest person he knows about all this stuff!

    I am so impressed with him being willing to tell people about things like mental illness and not being ashamed. I raised him right!

    This obviously makes him a really good officer!!!
