I respect your opinion, but I strongly disagree. There are many ways to teach children life lessons so they will grow up to be responsible adults. I've heard of parents kicking their teens out of the house as a life lesson... and in some ways I could imagine that that would be productive, teaching independence and offers an opportunity to see just how much we really do rely on our parents. But kicking your child out of the country is just going way over board. It's inhuman and shows an act of negligence from the parents. Disipline is an important aspect in raising a child, but somehow the word "love" got lost somewhere in the mix. A parent should be the number one supporter in a child's life, after all the only real way we learn what exactly love is, is through our parents. As a future mom, I could never imagine leaving my child. I am disgusted by the actions of my mother. I don't have to beg for her "forgivness" or love. Do I have to "earn" the right to be able to live in the area where I grew up? To be able to see my little sister and build a relationship with her? To finish my education? Is that really the way you think???
They might have a school there, I'm not sure... but I would imagine it's only for children that are american citizens... plus by law I am no longer a child, so their children services wouldn't be available to me anyways.
Not a fan- a friend!! :) Still in Russia...
Going from place to place, I don't always have internet access! I don't exactly have any updates on my situation that I can give, but I will try to post things more often:)
Happy Thanksgiving to you too! :)
Going to the media was really my last option, my time is ticking and at some point I have to take back control of my life! My intentions never were to hurt them, but at the end of the day I was TRICKED and decieved by my own parents. I came to a new country under the impression that this was going to be a vacation. I don't hate them, but I hate the fact that I was thrown away like garbage at the time that I needed them the most. All because I was "too difficult to handle". I was a child, they were adults.
Thank you so much! :)
