"I used to think that kids that got addicted to drugs were from hard family situations. I thought maybe from homes where no one was paying attention. Surely they didn’t have good parents that loved them and did all they could to raise them right. I was wrong.
"My son’s addiction has taken me to places that I never thought I’d be. It has caused me to feel a pain so deep, that at times I can hardly breathe. It has kept me up all night many nights. The desperation of it is crippling. Sometimes I just have to focus on getting through the hour. However, it has also brought me insight, compassion, understanding, and strength. But most of all it has taught me the power of love like I never knew before."
