One of the hardest things I’ve ever had to do was leave my kid in jail.  We were afraid for her life. She had been on drugs for 2 years and nothing was working.  She was over 21 so we couldn’t force her into re-hab.  Every day was just a total worry.  Every time the phone rang I was scared to death something had happened to her.

Then one night she got stopped driving a friends car.  They searched all of them and found meth.  Well, of course she went straight to jail for that.  When we found out, we were upset and relieved at the same time.  After a couple days, she was able to call us and we set up an account so we could talk to her, some.  The problem with that was she would call and cry to her dad and I, wanting to come home.  We just told her straight out we weren’t going to bail her out.  She’s known for a long time she needed to get help.
