Today I woke up, with a spring in my step. I realized something as I left on the trek to get David. I am at peace. I felt an incredible sense of peace when I realized that. It was inspiring. As I felt this, I was crossing the dam near our home. Headed south west into Montana. I don’t know how to put it into words. But it was like all of a sudden, the troubles of the past week were lifted from my shoulders. Does that mean I think everything is going to be golden with David’s return home? Not on your life.

Monday, when I pick up my son, magic will happen. He will see that I love him unconditionally. He will see that I am accepting of him. He will see that we are embracing his return to the family. He will know the love that we have in our hearts. Tuesday when we arrive home, he will be greeted by his siblings and Mom happily. He will see that they love him unconditionally. After that, come what may, everything will be right with our world.

Evidently word came down to everyone that David and staff were not to have any contact with home. Friday nights, I have been getting a call from David’s primary. That didn’t happen tonight, so I called there. After having the situation explained to me, all that I can say is I am disappointed. Disappointed that when we need it most, we are limited in our support from this facility. David is still in their care. So after explaining what was said between the therapist and myself, the primary indicated that she would call me tomorrow. It is bad enough that they
