My son is 16 and in the custody of the state-most likely until he turns 18. He finished rehab in early March and is continuing with after care and counseling. He has refused to talk to me in over a week. I was really afraid I had lost him forever. I spoke to his primary counselor last night (the first time he had heard my story and I could go on forever about state care) but he said my son is doing well in his programs. He is refusing contact with me until his counseling progresses and we can do some family sessions. I was concerned that by respecting his wishes and not trying to call him my son would think that I abandoned him. His counselor assured me that he does not feel that way but does want his space to deal with his issues until he is ready to work with me in counseling. I try to take it day by day but it is so hard. At least for today I am feeling a glimmer of hope for the future.
