Thanks for your nice words. I am doing quite well in spite of losing the man I
love (he died 6/1 suddenly of a heart attack, with no history, at the age of
36), all avenues in Georgia being exhausted in finding my son (still nothing),
and my own health. (thank God it is holding up.)
Regarding your comment on top of this message--
I NEVER said you should not try to help every boy -- I said there is a fine line
where one can lose everything you have worked for with all the boys just to try
to save the one boy.
I have worked with LDS and handicapped boys and units for all of my 20+ years,
and certainly KNOW that we can't just give up.
I am also the den leader who fought and fought to keep one little boy in our
program, only to have him kicked out for "stealing" years later. He now is an
Eagle Scout in jail!
It only takes one Eagle like that to spoil the public view of all of our Eagles.
