“Spewing profanity, our twenty-year-old son, Ethan, stormed out of our house on Mother’s Day of 2014. Having confronted him with illegal drug activity we suspected from texts on his phone, he decided to leave the comforts of our home on foot, walking down the street to we knew not where.”
Ethan’s mom, Shannon, remembers, “For our family’s peace of mind and to feel safer, we had the door locks changed. We had nightmares of drug dealers breaking in to shoot us. The two younger children still at home had their own set of fears.” Little did Shannon know at that time, but hope was on a distant horizon.
