My son Jimmy is on a train, headed back home, to Philadelphia. He has lived in Montana for the past sixteen months. He is coming back to live with me.
My brain tells me this is a mistake, my heart says you are his mother. The reality of our situation sits between my heart and my head, a mother’s leap of faith, in a boy who has lost his way. I am as ready as I will ever be. I knew this day would come.
With love and support from family and friends we will make this work.
