Hey I forgot to tell ya!
SS turned 18 this week!
Still lives at the residential treatment facility, but hasn't gotten into trouble since August. He will stay there until he graduates high school with them (targeted for this coming spring).
So while I'm glad we made it to this point, I have lots of unanswered questions - like what happens to him if he runs away again? I mean he's 18 now - do they report him missing? do the cops look for him?
Anyway... woo hoo he's 18!!!!
