This is the story of REAL life. The hopelessness when you feel no one understands or cares--not even God. It is the story of sending loved child to live on the streets and attempt suicide. It is the story of sending a loved child to a state mental health hospital. In the end it is the story of a child who found himself returning home to love and acceptance in a family which had never let him go.
