The key to your answer lies in the fact that your son is 31 years old. He is not a child, but a man. At this point in his life, he is served best by a mother who respects him enough to believe with absolute conviction that he has it within him to deal with his problems like an adult and move on, than by a mother who puts out the energy that perhaps we won't be able to handle his own problems. Do you see how this works? Your believing he is strong enough to handle all these things (with God's help of course) will create the energy of support that he most needs now. Pray for him continually, in the closet of your own heart, and miracles in his life will never cease.
