Do you know how hard that is?
First of all, this kid would never use the internet - or his real name if he did. Any searches for him or his beautiful dog come up empty. So I try finding his family...not so easy with a dad named 'John Smith'. LOL They all moved away, so we don't even know where to look. Dad & friend were last heard heading back up to NY, where they had moved from. Sister moved in with her boyfriend sort-of locally, last we heard, but we don't know his last name or phone number. No clue where mom went, but probably with her family somewhere in Texas. Maybe.
It's harder than one might expect. Friend never went to school here, but his sister did. I'm going to try Classmates, but I don't have a 'gold account' so it might not help if I did find her. We'll see.
I don't really know why I'm writing this, except to maybe vent a little.
For all of you who so readily lend prayers and energy, please help us by seeing us reconnecting. See this friend healthy and whole, and willing to come back into our lives. I'm doing what I can to make our home open and receptive for him once again, and I only hope that he will flow his way back to us. I know it would mean the world to Josh.
Thanks for listening.
