When my step son was seventeen years old, he decided he wanted to move in with his dad living in California . Being a new kid on the block, he wanted to make friends with the kids his age, so he started to hang out with them after school. Our former neighborhood was not a very safe place for a family with younger children and teenagers. We learned there were gang members living in the area after we purchased the property. Being new in the community, we tried our best to make friends with the neighbors and to live a normal life. The problems started as soon as the kids started hanging out with my step son. We had several serious conversations about avoiding alcohol, drugs and gang-related activities, but the outside influences prevailed introducing a number of problems into our family.
Because of his affiliations my step son faced multiple issues with the law. Tragically we had a serious legal problem when he was involved in an accident driving under the influence of alcohol. We were shaken with the phone call one early morning with the police officer on the other line informing us of the accident. We are thankful daily that he came out alive from that accident and no one was injured in the single car accident. Even the police officer was surprised how our son managed to come out of the accident with just minor bruises and cuts even though the car was totaled.
We decided California influences were not meant for him, so when he suggested a return to the Midwest to attend a vocational school we purchased a plane ticket quickly to save his life—literally. He faced several misdemeanors and fines from the accident but no jail time. Ten years later, he still talks about the accident and all the problems he faced with the law, but this time with more appreciation of life. He used that accident to change his heart and decided to live each day with more value for his life. He is still single, very successful in his chosen career and has never had any additional problems with the law.
