    Angela I will keep Travis and his family in my prayers. I’m sorry you are going through this but as you said all you can do now is turn it over to God. God is the only one that can change Travis and all the prayers and support from friends and loved ones. God bless your family.

    I love Travis with all my Heart &soul,s but every time he gets in trouble he gets 90 days here, 6mo there, and its obviously not making a big enough impression on him. I feel that if someone dosent do something really drastic now, He will end up dead or hurting someone else. I can’t help him. His father and I have tried everything !!!.All I can do is pray, and turn him over to GOD.. We ask to join us in prayer for our son..Thank You..
