Hi, the son I wrote about several years ago grew up and became a decent person. He was accepted to college and will be leaving this fall, about 4 1/2 hours away.

Any ideas for love/support at a distance? My goal will not to be to call and text and hover, and to let him gain some independence, but to let him know that we are thinking of him, especially those early weeks when he might indeed be homesick.

So far, I have a couple of postcard books with cheesy cartoons and movie posters, which we can send weekly, and I thought we would send him some homemade jerky or biscotti now and then. Any other ideas? Thanks, and thanks again to those of you who gave words of encouragement when I was despairing!
