A new journey begins

As I type this note, my son is on his way to Palm Springs, California, to hopefully get the treatment he needs to start his life anew. If you're so inclined to do such things, please say a prayer for him tonight--or even right now--and whenever you might think about him. Or light a candle for him. Or both. Michigan to California is a long journey. But my son is a wonderful young man who has a long journey ahead of him. I hope he believes in himself and embraces this opportunity for change.

Special thanks to Ken Seeley and Jeffrey Seltzer of Intervention 911 and (especially) Britt Bonner and Foundations Recovery Network. You are all angels my wife and I didn't know existed. And to the staff at Michael's House: Please take good care of my son and guide him in his recovery. He's a great kid who just needs some help finding his way.

Thank you all for your support. I love you all.

And I love you, son. Here's hoping you can rest your heavy head tonight on a bed/Of California stars.

  1. OH!!! This is great news, now we know what you had in the works. Ken Seeley is a great guy, I talked to him last summer when they wanted my son on their show, but we chickened out at the last minute when we read the contract. In hindsight I can see it was not the right timing. I hope for your son it is the perfect timing. I feel like he's right next door to me and I want to run our to Palm Springs and give him a hug. (2 hour drive)

    You know what, he will see lots of California stars out in the desert. If I want to see Hollywood stars I drive to LA (like...never) and when I want to see the glorious night sky full of stars so close you can touch them, I drive to PS (often).

    I'm so excited for this opportunity and can tell you are too. Keep us posted!!!!
