    > Be me


    > Go to see adoptive mother in which I haven't seen in TEN YEARS due to adoption and her own personal issues


    > Enters nursing home. Room smells of lysol and crap.

    > Bedridden and sick, she beckons me closer to her bedside.

    >As we hug, I notice "The Truth About God" tracts and "What Does The Bible Really Teach?" magazine

    > Heard I was being raised by JW's and that she has been studying with them for four years.

    > "I am so happy to have come to know about Jehovah", she says


    >Paces room for the rest of the three hour visit...nervously.

    The irony. ..

    That must have been hard on you. are you planning on seeing her again?

    Please let us know how you are doing.

    You say "adoptive mother," is that correct? In this context it would seem she is a birth mother? Or perhaps an adoptive mother who is no longer raising you? Sorry for my confusion.

    Thoughtless : hope you are doing ok.

    My mom had a nervous breakdown when I was little. She was a JW. I ended in up being raised by some JWs.

    My mom was DF twice. She came back in and now she is pioneering. She s in her 80s.

    My mom never lost faith- even after she found out that the JWs she entrusted her kids to were abusive and c hild molesters.

    I didn't go back with my mom until I was 13. It was hard reajusting. We still talk. I dont call her as much any more.

    Maybe your mom thinks you will have something in common since she is studying.

    I m thinking about you. If you ever want to compare foster notes. Pm me.
