18 months ago i heard my (now) 35 year old son had been DF'd.
i.d been shunned by my family for many years---i was very concerned for him because of the shunning he would get-& the loss of friends.
so--using the net (quite new to me)---i started looking at ex jw sites--i had no idea they existed. after a while i joined here.
i found my son through Facebook---we chat a bit on there--& he suggested a meet up next time hes in my area--i live on an island off the coast of GB.
my son is doing OK in life--has a new partner--home & job: he also maintains regular contact with his 2 kids---obviously not wanting to go through the same as i did. i met his ex wife once. a rabid JW fanatic--he is SO much better off now.
ironically his born-in jw mother (my first wife) shuns him totally---her own flesh and blood.
dont you just love that religion.
