" So it seems like the starter solenoid is getting current, but the starter motor is not"
What is supposed to happen is that for most starter solenoids, the solenoid gets power and an internal shaft moves/slides the Bendix gear toward the flywheel. After that happens, the starter gets power as the shaft reaches the end of it's travel, electrical contacts being closed, powering the starter motor itself (you do not want the starter motor to start turning before the starter Bendix gear is engaged in the flywheel teeth).
If the solenoid gets power but nothing else happens, this usually indicates that the solenoid shaft is hanging up, due to wear on it creating roughness or ridges.
Odds are that the solenoid is shot and needs to be replaced, and the starter itself is most likely ok. Been there done that.
