Getty! 2017

Ahhh Getty, as cute as ever
 


Broke his finger playing football at the residential center.



After about 10 weeks in treatment, he earned a trip to Moab with a few residents and a couple of therapists. He had been chewing through his shirts to get out of that center for even a few minutes.

Meditation—his main form of entertainment these days. That, reading, and push ups. Reading! (He's sitting on The Four Agreements.)


He also got to come home for the first time after 83 days in residential treatment for Easter morning

Back together after five months 💪


Listening intently to church speakers...



See how I watch them out of the corner of my eye?...😂😎🙏


In May, Getty ran away from the center and got into more trouble than I thought possible in less than 24 hours before he (and 2 others) were picked up by the police. He was sent back to treatment and lost all home visits and other privileges. 

In June, Rob and I were called in for a special meeting with the director of the treatment center. Getty was on the verge of being "referred out." He was hopeless. Had stopped trying. Just biding his time. Something needed to change. We suggested a fresh start... and a haircut to signify the change? "I'll do it." ... ha, I rushed him out the door to Sports Clips before he could give it a second thought 😉



We called it Getty's "Sunshine" hair....



Oh man.

Things are looking better already.
