Brothers leave their worries behind

Kathy and Craig could never predict when the phone might ring. Inevitably, a call would come. On the other end of the line was their grandsons’ father, a single dad who not only struggled to care for his boys, Jonathan and Thomas, but struggled to care for himself.

“He would get on drugs and drink alcohol and not have a job. He couldn’t feed them,” Kathy divulges. “He would call us and get us to come get the boys.”

The boys’ mother, who had left years earlier and moved to a different state, was no longer in the family’s life. Craig and Kathy were the only people their son-in-law could turn to in times of crisis.
