Our Unexpected Journey: Helping You Be Prepared
We would like to share our son Hayden's story and our dark journey through his downward spiral into drug use, addiction and legal issues. Our seemingly perfect family life came to an abrupt end when we found ourselves unprepared and uneducated to manage these issues. We were ashamed, embarrassed, and felt very alone. We lost our sweet beloved son, Hayden, in 2014 just before his 23rd birthday and on our 28th wedding anniversary. Our experience was very unfortunate and one we wish no parent would experience - sadly many will and are today. As Hayden's parents, one way for us to bring some light to this darkness is to tell others of our experience in hopes to provide you with some knowledge how drug abuse can start, what to watch for, and tools to plan and be prepared.
