Prayers for L
Well it's down to the wire and it's prayers or nothing. L gets out of jail on Monday and as of today he has nowhere to go to. The plan for he and his girlfriend D to stay with her folks in the town a few hours away has fallen through. She is there and they want to be together, but mom and dad have reasons why he can't stay with them....good and reasonable ones in the big picture, but not so good for him right now. I've been making some calls, but all the programs there have huge waiting lists, or he doesn't qualify for one reason or another. She's been asking friends, but all their couches and spare beds are full. There is just nothing breaking. And the situation on our end is no brighter at this point. It is, as they say, complicated. We really don't have a place or funds to house him for more than a couple nights either. He does have a ride to get there. The best hope would be for one of D's friends to come through with a place...just till they can get on their feet. That's my prayer today, and it's a big one.
