Michael, the laugh is on you, your father left you as well, the only thing you have is a family, Christopher is homeless and you should be ashamed of yourself for "not" being there for him.

Sorry,Susan Light. Don't know any of these people but I do Know that no family member is responsible for their 40- year- old relative who "borrows" (read:steals) a car and is in possession of drug paraphernalia. You need to look-up the term "enabler" and get yourself to Al-anon if you think otherwise.

you are "not" such a wise one in my eyes and by the way, who are you to judge "my son", who I have seen or heard from for 38yrs. I am his biological mother and I have been looking for him and this is how I find out how great his father was to him. He was kidnapped from me and I just found out in the last few months where he actually is!!! So don't judge me wiseone, and by the way who are you anyway????

Esiuol | Louise I read your bio, the law does state that one is innocent until proven guilty and miss perfect--practice what you preach!!! "People need pride in where they live and upbringing of their family. Get to know your neighbors, help in the community and lend a hand. Remember, a smile is contagious and it only takes a second to say, "HI." His father left him with his second wife 20 years ago, and he "believed" I left him as well---I didn't, I'm a Canadian and my ex beat the crap out of me and the Canadian Embassy sent me back to Canada without my son, but with a promise I'd get him after I found a home for us and guess what??????? His father moved from where they lived and I never seen or heard from him again!!! If you know the outcome of his charges, let me know, but you won't because you're like the rest of them, they just don't care!!!!
