Bad news

Evan has been getting in touch with his paternal relatives. Much of it has been positive. It looks like the agency is going to buy Evan a plane ticket to go visit one of his older half-brothers, who just happens to be gay.

Of course it couldn't all be positive.

His paternal grandmother's account of his father's death is very different than his mother's.

Her story and the implications of it are beyond horrible. Evan is devastated.

He doesn't know what to believe or whom to trust.

He told me about it, cried, and just left the house. Hopefully it is just to walk and perhaps to have emotional conversations on his cell phone which I cannot hear.

It may be a difficult week around here. The new respite girl will be here tomorrow afternoon and will be staying until Sunday.

Meanwhile Evan has to sort through this.

  1. I'm really sorry! I don't know what to say...

    This reminds me so much of a story that was in our local news a few years ago. A man was convicted of shooting his wife; he claimed she was trying to commit suicide and she was shot while he wrestled the gun away.

    He went to prison, his children grew up living with family friends. In the end, they heard several versions of how their mother died, and I'm sure it must have been very hard for them to sort out.

    Tell Evan that your Internet readers are sending him positive energy.
