Rather than a trip into alien territory, it will feel more like coming home. Do I have to know it all before I start? What if I can’t do a perfect job of modelling character?

He said that he knew that mom and dad had used drugs too, and when they were all living together, he could sometimes smell marijuana coming from their bedroom. After meeting the children, I talked to Sam and his wife separately. I shared my concerns, heard more of theirs, and offered suggestions to create more cohesion.
