Yeah that no response thing is pretty hard to take.... I get that all the time. I text something and hear nothing back. I have learned that means either he doesn't want to respond or doesn't feel he needs to... and it is better if I just let it go and wait... or text him another day with some piece of info. What I do find is that when he needs something he does text me and that usually happens before i think it will. So yeah wait a couple days and then text him with something else. So Gage and his mom have your name and number correct? I would assume if anything really bad happened they would contact you? That is my comfort, I know the people where my son is staying know my name and number and I trust if things got bad they would contact me. I know they would because the dad contacts me now and then to check in anyways.... but assuming someone would call if you if something terrible happened, then assume no news is good news..... and do something fun for you.
