I am thinking that as exers, we were all used to isolation within our own little twisted community while in the fam. Now that we are out (FGs) and some of our children are (SGs) and others are wanting to leave but there are no immediate resources, is it possible to hook up with shelters in areas where visitation and moral support is there from relatives that are exers, but the shelter provides a stepping stone for them to get on their feet. Another thought is that there are mainstream orgs (not church) and churches (not family like) where if there was an initiative by someone with the time, there could be possible foster settings, where the kids will not be abused and see something totally different and truely family-like (as in NOT "THE family-like)where they can talk about their anger etc. and feel safe? I can look in my area if anyone is in the Houston area and seeking this kind of assistance. I totally understand the financial inability to provide the kind of support a kid would need (or adult sga) coming out of that group. Also, their very possible need to deal with their anger outside of exer realms. What do you think? It has to be heartbreaking to go thru this. I am sorry you have to deal with this kind of hurt, Acheick.
