So our attorney called and gave me the lowdown. The Judge was not as mad as she thought she would be, that's good. She didn't want to make any decisions so she held him over till next week. They like Keven, they care about him and they don't want to punish him - they want to do what's best. BUT, there comes a point where you've done all you can. In my opinion he ran out of chances a few "last chances" ago but I am glad they are the experts and know what they're doing. I trust them.
Keven may have lied about something and so now the test is: will he tell the total truth. If he lies he's done.
When he was a young child all the way up to drugs, he was always honest. I taught him from an early age that no matter what the circumstances were, the truth was always the right choice and lying usually made matters much worse. I also told him if he told me the truth (like if he did something wrong) that I may be mad, but I would still be able to trust him.
Since it was just him and me, we were always super close. He HATED for me to be disappointed in him more than anything. It would devastate his little boy heart.
That was long ago. Now there's an addict living in my son, and the addict will cheat, lie, steal or manipulate to protect himself and to achieve his goal: to keep using.
It hard to believe this charming little sweetie pie is sitting in jail with three years (so far) of his life wasted on drugs. It hurts.
my little man :)
OH! I just remembered. Anthony's grandmother called me to say that Ant had called her to "say goodbye". He was totally strung out and threatening suicide. We talked about how this was typical behavior for him and that it was probably not a real threat. I haven't heard anything today. The eerie thing is I had just told Keven Monday on the way to jail that I had a feeling we'd be attending Ant's funeral soon....Peace, Hope and Love, Barbara
