When we left Steve at FFS on January 11, 2011, we could not imagine his going on to anything more than community college or some kind of training program for a trade. To have him enter a first-class college is nothing short of a miracle. You all have certainly done your job well in preparing this young man for higher education … and we want everyone there to know how grateful we are. At the same time, we hope he will remain clean and sober as he moves forward … no small task on a college campus … yet, if you all have been able to get him ready for college in this short time … I have no doubt that he has learned the tools that will allow him to live a clean, sober life, too. I think he has taken his ‘program’ work far more seriously since turning 18. Somehow, that strange junction where one becomes an adult had a profound effect on Steve. I think it was then that he realized he was over being a kid, and that now things count. Thank you all for being there for him.
Blessings on you all,
TJ – Steve’s father
