I've reached the bottom of the well I've been in for a long time. Have no idea how I came across your name. Do you have any idea how I can help myself. Can't let my beautiful amazing 19 year old son down. I'm lost and desperately want to find me. The robot in me is dying. Have no idea why in Gods name I'm actually typing these words to you. I'm imagining that you'll actually read this and help me. Far cry I know. I wish someone knew how wonderful my son is and they would love my son as much as I did and maybe they would help me. He's amazing. REALLY!!! Have no clue why God would give me the best boy in the whole world.
