Jenny got a text a mile long from Amber.

Sam really wants to come for a visit  
He has been asking about u  
He wants to see his sister  
He's on new medication/doing better
But today he threw a fit in front of a new client  
He asked for the money for his room and board 
I know it's early but I can bring him to u
U can give him cash right?

Jenny sat in stunned disbelief.  Butterflies rising up, heart racing.  She sucked in a short breath. Then exhaled, Huhhhhhh  She carefully types “Can I call you?”

Reply: Yes.

One more time, Huhhhhhh.  She’d rather be any place but here.

As always, more to come.
