My ex and I divorced when my son was 9. He later chose to live with my ex and his wife and my youngest chose to live with me and my husband. My son's stepmother has poisoned my son into thinking that I don't love him - to the point he really believes he heard me say that! My ex and his wife are in some kind of financial trouble and also trouble with drugs and hurridly moved out of state (we think they are running). Although my son is 21, he chose to move with them. We had no idea, and found out Christmas day he left with them. It came as a complete shock that he is mad at me to the point he doesn't ever want to see me again. He didn't even give me a chance to say anything. I have no way of contacting him because he disconnected his cell phone and Facebook and the only way to get word to him is through my ex's mother. HELP!!!!

Evelyn and Julie, thank you so much for your encouraging words and advice. He's been such a follower all his life. I can only hope he matures and sees (and understands) these people for what they are before he ends up like them. As a parent, it's so hard to stand back and watch this happen. It's only been a few weeks, but it feels like eternity. :-(

Oh how sad. It is very hard to let go of your grown children. Take every chance you get to let him know you love him and will always be there. Send a little letter or card to him through your ex mother in law from time to time so he knows you are there. I hope and pray that he sees through the lies he was told.
