I need real words/ real word advice to write to my nephew. He's locked up for arson; he cuts his arms. He is the most amazing person when he isn't so lost in despair that he does these things. He is the smartest, most perceptive, imaginative, socially intelligent person i have ever known; he loves to read, loves music, is gentle and thoughtfull. But his mom, who was a teen when she had him is shacked up with yet another boyfriend and illegitimate child #3 in her arms... My nephew sleeps on the porch of the house of his mom's boyfriend - in PA. I am in CA. and even if I can't change where he lives, is there anything I can say to help change how he feels?? Is there a shelter organization for gay teens like there is for battered women?? I'm flying there for a hearing, but I am not allowed in. I'll just sit in the lobby and hope to catch a glimpse of him. He is not a bad kid... Is there any organization that can help if he requests help?? He is 15 - state of Pennsulvania. If no one can advise me on the legal stuff, that is OK - the other stuff is just as important if not more. How can I help him?

My goal was to live to retire and I guess having to take early retirement because of health reasons wasn't exactly the way I had planned things. I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
