Mom and Dad meet. Evie is born. Mom is caught drugging Dad as part of an extortion attempt. Dad receives emergency custody. Mom gets scared that she will be in trouble with the police and flees without me. Dad, Mom’s parents and her doctors all help her get treatment for Borderline Personality Disorder. Headed for residential care in San Francisco, Mom concocts to take me on ‘vacation’ to visit my grandparents in Westchester beforehand. I haven’t really been able to see my Dad since.
