My goodness, where do I begin. I'm a mother among other things, who has made many mistakes (who hasn't) and the time has come to make right the wrong. Over ten years ago, after much trial and error, I had to come to a decision to reach out to a specific program to help my son. I was afraid for his life, and was desperate. Move forward to the present, only to find out what I chose was a nightmare, a horror story for him and countless others at troubled teens residential schools. It turns out there was/is much abuse going on - physical, emotional, mental, sexual. I say is, because it is still happening in these schools. Once I found out and my son revealed more to me, I couldn't turn my back on the truth. And so, this is why we need help raising funds to pay for a lawyer to help us and help thousands and thousands going through this presently. I'm a mother, an advocate, a volunteer, a wife, a business owner, a pastor, a trans-personal therapist, a survivor from ritual abuse and incest, a healer, and so much more. I cannot change the past, I cannot change what I regret, except to move forward and make something good come out of this, for my son, for the others in the past, and for those that will be under their care, the wrong care, if we don't make a change to this system. We've come along way in society, some forward, some backward - this needs to go forward.
