Parenting a prodigal isn’t easy. Dennis Mansfield knows. His son, Nate, started experimenting with marijuana as a teen and eventually became addicted to heroin in his twenties. Dennis talks about his hopes and love for his son, despite his rebellion and eventual incarceration. Praying jail time would turn him around, Dennis continued to encourage his son after his release, and is thankful for the time he spent with Nate before he was found dead from an adverse drug reaction that killed him in his sleep at the age of 27.
