I knew he should have gone with us to South Cackalackey.
After initially saying yes, "A" changed his mind and now wants to stay in Chicago. Which is a shame, I really think he would have flourished out here away from the gangs and shootings and drugs and everything else going on in the city. I think he chose a short-term gain (staying with friends and whatnot) versus coming out here and having a real shot to really make something of himself. He will always be in my prayers.
Anyway, the wait for the phone call begins again. The son that needs us is out there, it's just a matter of time.
