Reading for memories
My memories have spent a lot of time behind strong floodgates. I have read my mothers notes on here and the replies, and am touched by how much love and caring I feel from each of you. It brings back good memories. The group did have one thing going for them and that was love, shared with all. I think everyone involved with the group has a sense of compassion that I feel is lacking in most others I've met and worked with. Anyway I do remember some things from my 0-9 years in the group, 5 of which were in Thailand. I'd be interested in finding and talking to other kids that came out of the group in the 7-12 yr window and how they may have adapted then and now. I admit I dont always have smooth relationships with my parents, but do know that they love me emmensely and care about all of our well-being. If any of you want to ask me a question or be there for me to ask you one, my email is firstname.lastname@example.org
. I have open communication with my brothers and sister, and have really found that we need each other more than we think. Still finding a use for the parents and how to manage a meaningful relationship. But honestly, I am lucky to be where I am and having done so with only a little help, but a lot of hard work in the system.
Part of the issues with people like me trying to find others to talk to and try to communicate our feelings or memories is all the other people (brothers, sisters, father, mother) that I know can easily search for and find this content. Not always do I want them to know how I feel or what I'm saying. Its a trait I picked up in the group. So I guess I'm a hypocrite, as I found my moms posting here and just went ahead and piggybacked on it to feed this into the site. And mom and dad if you read this, I love you!
