My son wants to move back home

A little over a year ago my 14yo son decided he wanted to move with is father who lives in another state. So a lil history, i was a young mother i have two children from my previous relationship who are now 14 & 13. I left their father when they were 2 & 3, raised my son till he decided to live with his Dad. This spring break i flew him down for 2wks. I would ask if he was home sick and he would say "no, i don't want to go back but i don't want to leave my dad'". So my son leaves back and calls me the next morning saying he wants to come back home b/c he misses his family and there is nothing up where his lives. I live in the city in California he was raised here all his life. He moved to a small town in Colorado where there is not much to do. Of course i want him back home with me, but he is doing really good academically in Colorado and will he be happy living with me?. The thing is at first he didn't want to come back home with out his father coming too. He would mention here & there that all his life he wanted to live with his dad of course would hurt me but i wouldn't let him know. So if i can get some advice as to what i should ask him so that he is positive he wants to move back home.

i feel if he wants to be back with you, there is nothing better than that. let him come, embrace him with open arms. you are his mother. no one can take care of him in a better way than a mother. enjoy your son's stay with you.
