Our son has been home for 6 months, as of the 4th. It doesn't seem like it's been that long, but at the same time, it feels much longer because so many things in his life have changed. He also got 6 months clean & sober that day, for which we're so thankful and proud. I think he's close to a year sober, I know he stopped drinking sometime last year in July. He doesn't keep track of that anymore, since he restarted when he gave everything up in January, but I do.
We're pretty sure that we'll be letting our daughter come back home when she gets out of jail, or out of rehab (whichever comes first). She seems to be doing really well, going to AA while she's in and working some steps. She actually seems to see where she went wrong this time, so we'll see how it all pans out when it gets closer to that time. We won't put up with her using drugs or drinking, so if she slips up, she'll be leaving again. We've all agreed to that and are putting the rules together that she'll have to agree to before we let her in. It makes us all a little nervous, but we feel like we need to step in at least try to help her. So, I guess wish us luck in the coming months, we're likely to need it.
