Whats in a name....
And then addiction hits and it slithers its way in and it pollutes and taints the family and the hope that they held for that young person. It brings with it lies, and chaos, and it swirls around entwining through the family and it teases and torments and irritates like a buzzing fly that won't go away.
The family has to WORK so hard at being ok, at being healthy and functioning, at dodging addictions arrows of despair that seem to be flying all around them. Despite their sadness and pain and worry they keep moving, keep walking forward. They learn to go on, but always in their heart of hearts is the hope that is kept hidden away, that their sweet precious baby will find their way back to wholeness.
