    Default He knows.......

    Some of you know, some don't my 27 year old son is in prison for drug offences. It has been a hard road for me to accept, but I have accepted it. I am not happy and I am so sad. He was raised right and graduated with honors, had scholorships to any college he wanted...and chose drugs....tonight Vegas is passed out snoring loudly and I get the call.."will you accept a call from inmate Brandon from ***" I accepted and talked and hung up and cried my eyes out...Vegas got up from his nights slumber and jumped up beside me and started licking my face off, he put all his weight on me and he just knew....I love how he knows and comforts me...I just wanted to share. I my Vegas, he loves me no matter what. I have never had so unconditional love that I have had from my Vegas, and I love him the same. I am just so sad.

    ohhhh Kelly....Vegas senses your sadness and loves you so much. Remember...this is the path your son chose. Maybe..just maybe.. he will come out of this a grown up..he's safe right now...and look upon it as a chance for him to take charge and have the life you want for him. It is in his lap Kelly...you've done more than most.

    Here's the good news: he's somewhere where he can change his life, if he chooses to. Prison is a crappy place BUT there are opportunities there for the guys and gals looking for them. Just remember: his life is his problem. Nothing you can do now except support his recovery, should he chose that path.

    For the time being, he's relatively safe and unable to hurt other people with his drug nonsense. So that's good news!

    Sadly, I know far more about this topic than I care to know.

    I'm sorry you're so sad. I'll never understand the power of drugs over people. When my daughter was two and still not talking the first thing her speech therapist asked was, "Did you do drugs?" I was taken aback because I've always been a shy person and never delved into that world. I didn't even take an antacid or aspirin even though I had horrible morning sickness, headaches and heartburn, to make sure my babies had every advantage before coming into this world. My daughter has a thyroid deficiency which might of contributed to her problems. The speech therapist said most of her clients were what she called her "drug babies." I think that's when I realized how bad drugs were and how they impacted even the next generations. I'm not that ignorant to believe that my now adult children haven't tried/done drugs. According to my daughter kids are doing drugs on the way to school on the bus. There were times when I picked up my son from high school that he looked a bit too sleepy and it made my stomach churn. We do our best to raise our kids right and that they will have the wisdom to know how to navigate through this world of good and bad things. I'm grateful my only son is in his own home, single, working and just enjoys playing his online games for now. Hopefully he will find a good partner but if not that's ok too. He will be 30 this month. But then again he could of easily gone down the wrong path. Your son is still young and there is still time for him to reevaluate his future. Praying for good things to happen for him. He's already got a great mama who cares so much. Give that incredible Vegas a big hug for being a great shoulder! Dogs just have a special place in our hearts that's hard to put into words but are just as special as the people we love.

    You are in my thoughts as you navigate this tough road. That is what is wonderful about bulldogs - they are so in tune to our emotions. You never gave up on Vegas and gave him love and care so now he is a happy, healthy dog....now it is Vegas' turn to give you the support and unconditional love you need to get through this time. Thank goodness for our bullie babies!

    As others have said, we do our best with out kids. We teach them right from wrong and we point them in the right direction. After that, it's on them to stay where we've sent them. My ex-husband was an addict. I know what these things can do to a person, how it clouds their mind. As long as he knows you love him, he will come out of this a better person.

    And Vegas!! Oh my Vegas. What a special boy you have there :

    For me, her name was Abby
