Patrica, I so admire your guts and courage. At my age, I could not imagine having to raise a young child. Of course I suspect I am far older than you, and that is a factor. Twenty years ago it would have been a different matter. Your grandson inherited lousy parents, but lucked out with grandma and grandpa. I am sure he knows he is loved and wanted by both of you, and that is what all kids need - love and security. You are my heroes!!
