I just joined this site today and look forward to meeting new friends here.
My kiddos are 22 and 16. I'm originally from New Orleans, but I have lived in Texas, Mississippi and all the way across the pond in the UK. I returned to the New Orleans area 3 years ago and glad to be back on this side of the pond again.
I have an Outreach program for abused women and offer support to parents of teens who self-harm. My daughter and I have been through some rough times and, although we have good days and bad days, I believe we're on the right path now. We've dealt with an abusive husband/father, divorce, self-harm, grief (her father passed away and then my mother passed a year later), truancy, transition to a new culture (which she moved from the UK to the US). We have a lot of insight to offer!
Please feel free to friend me and ask any questions you may have. I look forward to helping others with advice, support and understanding.
