I feel like I'm alone in my circumstance and there isn't really anyone I can talk to who understands. My 17 year old ran away from a state group home two weeks ago. I feel like I have completely lost him and I want nothing more for him to grow up and have a good life and be a good person. I turned him over to the state when he was 13. I found out he had been raping his 7 year old half-sister for 2 years. I will not allow him back into my house around his siblings. But that doesn't mean that I don't love him and want what is best for him. I got a phone call from him today. He told me he was thinking of turning himself in after what he calls a bad night. He told me he had done heroin and was raped. I tried to get him picked up but he took off from the location he was calling from. I don’t know what to do and I just feel at such a loss and feel so helpless. I feel that there is nothing I can do for him to help him and that all I am able to do is watch him destroy himself.
