Visit them in jail rather than family cemetery

By Stacey Hatcher Bishop

Mothers love their children unconditionally... Some of us Mothers have had to go thru things we never saw coming... Some see and chose not to see... Some admit it and some try to hide it...

There is no hiding addiction for long... it will come to light eventually... I pray if you're reading this and your child needs help, do something... When they tell you they can beat this on their own... They can't... believe me I know... Cally stayed in rehab one week and she could do it on her own... She promised... One week later she was gone...

Don't let my story become your story... Call the police (270-378-CALY) when they are behind the wheel under the influence... The nodding off, slurred speech, dilated pupils, the flu that goes away as soon as they get a visitor... I promise you'd rather visit the jail than the family cemetery.
