My son who is 35 years old is going to prison next week for a drug charge. He will have to serve 19 months before he can possibly be paroled. He has joint custody of a 3 1/2 year old son. His son stays with me and my husband half of the time (which is next door to his daddy) and he stays in another state with his mother half of the time. His daddy actually is a very good and very loving daddy to him in spite of his personal addiction. I don't know how to tell this wonderful little boy what his daddy is going to jail for and help him understand everything in a way a 3 year old can grasp it all. He adores his daddy. I am grieving so badly that he is going to lose some of his innocence this week. I also worry about what his mother is going to be telling him about his daddy when he is with her.
