Thanks for the warm sentiment Alex.

Alec is aware I'm the only one that can as well and he freaks out if I try to leave because he is afraid he will be left to deal with his pain without help.
His father isn't even allowed unsupervised visits because of substance abuse problems. Thankfully his dad has decided just to drop out of his life which is the best thing for now. If he cleans himself up and can prove it by 3 clean consecutive drug tests in a row, I would be open to them reestablishing a father-son relationship. His dad was a good man before the drug problem but now he is just a miserable unreliable liar and I wouldn't even trust our pet guinea pig to his care at the moment.
